Ronald Sukenick founded the American Book Review in 1977. ABR was one of the first literary journals entirely devoted to reviewing works from independent presses and continues to follow that tradition today.
The American Book Review was designed to offer a unique model for reviewing books, one edited by writers themselves in an effort to reproduce the interest they took in their peers’ works of fiction, poetry, and criticism. This collective approach remained intact while responsibility for producing the journal was assumed by the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1987, then by Illinois State University in 1995, and now by the University of Houston–Victoria.
In November 2006, the editorial aspects of ABR moved from Illinois State University to the University of Houston–Victoria (UHV) under the editorship of Dr. Jeffrey R. Di Leo, Editor and Publisher of ABR and UHV's Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. The production elements of ABR were also transferred in September 2007, making UHV the American Book Review’s single host.

Famous quotes containing the word history:
“Books of natural history aim commonly to be hasty schedules, or inventories of Gods property, by some clerk. They do not in the least teach the divine view of nature, but the popular view, or rather the popular method of studying nature, and make haste to conduct the persevering pupil only into that dilemma where the professors always dwell.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The disadvantage of men not knowing the past is that they do not know the present. History is a hill or high point of vantage, from which alone men see the town in which they live or the age in which they are living.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
“American time has stretched around the world. It has become the dominant tempo of modern history, especially of the history of Europe.”
—Harold Rosenberg (19061978)
