Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-9-These titles each focus on a single event, providing background for the occurrence and explaining its impact on world history. Black-and-white and full-color photographs, reproductions, and maps clarify complicated information. In the first book, Allan traces the problems faced by the Irish to a number of things, but mostly to the situation created by the English that condemned them to a life of poverty. Students will also learn the reason for the bitterness between the Irish and English that is still evident today. Assassination discusses the events leading up to the eve of World War I. The alliances among the various nations are described clearly and succinctly. Additionally, Ross explains how these alliances brought the nations of the world to the brink of confrontation. Negative reactions to the war in antiwar novels and poems are included. Students will find both of these books useful for research.-Lana Miles, Duchesne Academy, Houston, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
