With the disappearance of stand-alone book review sections in many newspapers and a drastic drop in the number of reviews in magazines, scholars have few timely ways to keep up with the latest books in the humanities and social sciences. H-Net's Book Channel is a state-of-the-art solution: A book discovery service that fills a crucial void.

--Steven Mintz, University of Texas at Austin
