Historiographies are published more commonly as article-length than as book-length works. Generally, use broader search terms when searching for books.
- Some scholarly articles available through America: History and Life (for U.S. and Canada) and Historical Abstracts (elsewhere) are historiographical in nature. Consider ANDing in the word historiography (which is a subject), e.g.
park* AND historiography
Broaden out the search by ORing in "review essay":
park* AND (historiography OR "review essay")
