How does one go back with JavaScript

Can't seem to find it in any of my books.

Many thanks for any help.

    The first one, which does not need a number in the parenthesis, returns the user to the

    or 'back' (insert a negative number in the parenthesis) you want the user to go, the command is:
    history.go

    It uses a form button and is coded like this:
