Some have lasted more than a century, some started only during the last decade, and some have ceased publication after only a few issues. This reference book profiles seventy-five consumer magazines published in the United States and read primarily by women.

This book provides a listing of 920 general-interest consumer magazines that specialize geographically. Comprising this highly active magazine genre are city magazines (i.e., New York, Washingtonian); regional magazines (Sunset, Vermont Life); city speciality magazines (Houston Home and Garden, Hartford Woman), which specialize both geographically and by subject matter; and regional speciality magazines (Southern Homes, Virginia Wildlife). The book's three main sections--arranged alphabetically by title, chronologically by founding date, and geographically by state--cover regional interest magazines that have been in publication since 1950. Each entry in the alphabetical listing shows title, any known title changes, dates of publication, city and state of publication, and a sample of libraries that hold files of the magazine's back issues. For historical perspective, an appendix provides a representative alphabetical listing of magazines that published and perished prior to 1950 and that identified themselves by city, state, or region. The index's companion volume, Regional Interest Magazines of the United States (Greenwood), forthcoming, will contain in-depth profiles of roughly 100 of these magazines. This unique reference source will make a valuable addition to any library.
