ACLS Humanities E-Book is a collection of over 5,000 scholarly books in the humanities and social sciences. All of the titles were selected for inclusion by scholars and members of the American Council of Learned Societies from over 120 different publishers, including university presses, society presses, and commercial presses. Classic works and new scholarship are included in this collection.
Note: Since most material on this site is licensed for online electronic distribution only, this means that users are restricted to printing a chapter or chapters for personal research use. If, as an instructor, you want to use material in a course, you can provide the Citable Link permanent URL on the title record page. If you want to photocopy a chapter for your course, you must apply directly to the original publisher or copyright holder for permission. If in doubt, or for further information, see our section on fair use. To download a chapter, go to the chapter/section headings listed under the “Table of Contents” tab. The “Read” button will take you into the e-reader; clicking on the “Download” button generates a PDF of the chapter.
Publication dates are relatively recent, but the chronology works cover extends from the ancient to contemporary worlds.
