2) Select one or two subfiles of journals under Narrow by Discipline. African American Studies, American Studies, History, Political Science, and Population Studies are all possible subjects. 

3) Narrow the Item Type to only Articles. Reviews will result in long lists of books reviews, but not the full-text of the actual book.

4) Select your search terms carefully and consider the naming specific particpants to focus the results.
