Arcadia Publishing and The History Press has partnered with Google Book Search to give website visitors a limited preview of all of our titles. Clicking on the Google Preview on a book page will give users a limited preview of a title - but they can only access a limited number of pages (20%) to determine whether they’ve found what they’re looking for. All participating books are hosted on Google servers and protected by the same security as Google.com’s search data. To further protect book content, printing and image copying functions are disabled on all Google Book Search pages.
