You will probably want to search disciplinary databases (i.e. Worldwide Political Science, Criminal Justice Abstracts, and Sociological Abstracts) in addition to the more multi/interdisciplinary resources on this page. These links will take you to the disciplinary database library guides here at the WSU Libraries. For disciplines not on included, look here.
Finding Reviews: Some databases will let you filter by "book review" as an article type, but the search will not always be comprehensive. Generally its good to search for the title of the book in quotation marks (usually the part before the subtitle is fine), with the word review*, i.e. "Net Delusion" review* (The asterisk is a common truncation symbol and will let you search for both the word review and the word reviews in most databases). Sometimes you may want to search by the author's name in addition to (or instead of?) the title.
we have access to the PolicyMap database through 2/28/2021.
What is PolicyMap?
An online (no software installation needed) U.S. national data and mapping tool and analytics platform with multidisciplinary applications for college students and faculty. Undergraduate and graduate schools use us in their curriculum and research related to social sciences, urban studies, real estate and housing analysis, community and economic development, public administration, public health, policy and political science, education, business, economics, statistics, and geography, among others. Users can leverage thousands of U.S. data indicators in PolicyMap to perform demographic and socioeconomic analysis, from a neighborhood census block group in many cases, up to a national level, as well as create custom regions, for their research and studies.
