Research suggestion: Google books and Sources and Debates

Many of the articles and chapters listed at the end of each chapter in Sources and Debates in English History are readily available online if your library subscribes to major journals and/or JStor. If you have trouble finding works by historians mentioned in your library, you might try Google books.
  • You probably won't find a complete work by a recent historian in Google books (only a "Limited Preview." (Older works might offer you "Full view," which you can download and read. Others that offer "Snippet View" usually will not provide you enough to get a good quote from.) If you can't find the exact historians you want to contrast with each other but only others stating that they debate, perhaps your professor might be allayed if you find three historians summarizing them to make sure that this is a debate.
