Description: Founded in 1902, for more than 100 years the Times Literary Supplement has forged a reputation for fine writing, literary discoveries and insightful debate. Since its first issue, the TLS has attracted the contributions of the world’s most influential writers and critics of the 20th and 21st centuries, from T.S. Eliot and Virginia Woolf to A.N. Wilson and Christopher Hitchens in the 1990s and 2000s. The TLS Historical Archive is the improved and expanded new edition of the TLS Centenary Archive. It enables users to search every page of every issue of the TLS from 1902 to 2007, discovering a wealth of material in 300,000 reviews, letters, poems and articles. The value of the TLS Historical Archive for students, researchers and the general user lies in its broad cross-disciplinary reach. It is the only literary weekly to offer coverage of the latest and most important publications in multiple languages, across all areas of the humanities and social sciences. With reviews on books from every region of the world, the TLS Historical Archive has developed a voice that is truly international in its scope and appeal. The TLS has long published reviews of non-English language and translated books and devotes special issues to regional surveys of the USA, the Islamic world, France, Germany, Africa and the Far East. In its digital form, the Times Literary Supplement Historical Archive becomes a rich research tool allowing users to trace the views of influential opinion makers, the response of their contemporaries, the controversies and debates of the day making it the essential review for modern cultural studies.
