Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-- These surveys leave a great deal to be desired. For each year of the decade covered, 12 to 25 events or news items are capsulized. The books are definitely cut and paste jobs, and there is little consistency or continuity. A few concepts and words are defined, but most are not. Also, there is a lot of editorializing, which destroys the concept of a news approach. Articles are so brief as to be simplistic, and many presume prior knowledge of the period under discussion. Also, the information is so fragmented that it is impossible to see any cause-and-effect relationship. The black-and-white photographs are well reproduced and do extend the meager texts. A choice feature of the books is the appended double-page spread of American firsts, as well as a list of new words and expressions of the decade. Browsing through these titles may well send readers in search of a history book or encyclopedia. They'll need one. --Lois McCulley, Wichita Falls High School, TX
