- The American Historical Association's Guide to Historical Literature

Two volumes, arranged by time period and region of the world. Each section provides an overview of the historical writing on the period or region covered, with brief annotations on each work mentioned. Arranged by topic; be sure to use the index at the end of Volume 2 for full coverage.
You may want to look at sources like the Hutchinson Chronology of World History (Ref. D11 .M39 1999) for useful contextual information. These may provide you with the kind of background information that will help you develop a more complicated reading and a more sophisticated approach to your primary material.
