"Diplomatic historian Nicholas Evan Sarantakes has done a great service for web surfers with an interest in foreign policy by putting together the U.S. Diplomatic History Resources Index. As the name suggests, this site will guide you to online information on U.S. diplomacy past and present"--Fox News Sunday, December 22, 1996

 Hot Site, Congressional Quarterly, February, 1997

"U.S. foreign policy historians will gladly use this site to link up to an almost unending and unbelievably long list of historical archives and papers.  U.S. Diplomatic History Resources Index provides more references than can be listed here but examples range from the papers of J. William Fulbright and presidential libraries to documents on the Cuban Missile crisis, Vietnam, and Hiroshima to books.  While the listing can be inundating at times, the sources are easily linked and the payoff is extraordinary."  Web Guide Monthly Magazine, Premiere Issue (July/August), 1997

"Nick Sarantakes, an assistant professor of history at Texas A&M University--Commerce, has created a Web site geared toward scholars in history, political science, economics, area studies, international relations and journalism.  The 'U.S. Diplomatic History Resources Index' lists links to hundreds of Web sites ranging from Military Intelligence to the Roosevelt Cartoon Archive to the Government of New Zealand.  Already widely recognized in the national media, the site should easily become an indispensable tool for academics and history buffs alike."--Web Site of the Month, A&M System, Texas Newsletter, September 1998, p. 3

"Students and debaters of U.S. foreign policy will revel in the Web site of a historian from Texas A&M University. The U.S. Diplomatic History Resources Index of Nicholas E. Sarantakes, a professor at the branch campus in Commerce, northeast of Dallas, outlines hundreds of links both alphabetically and by subject. The principal page holds bookmarks, generally listed alphabetically starting with archives links and working its way down to the World Trade Organization. Under the History subheading, some of the headings hint at the scope of modern history: A Disraeli and the Suez Canal link sits next to a discussion of the 1945 Atomic Bomb decision; one Web site projects stereoscopic pictures of the Philippine-American War, while the previous link reviews the PBS television history of the war in Vietnam.

"The index also includes sub-pages devoted to books, centers of study and funding sources for research. The alphabetical listing and the categorical organization help make up for the lack of a search engine that could hack through the nearly 500 Web pages. Sarantakes states that the site is developing and he plans to add more sites."--The Washington Post, October 8, 1998, p. D-4
