Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It wouldn't be a bad idea for every literate American at least to skim this book by author-cartographer Doyle. Built around intricate, well-drawn, mainly color maps it transforms the raw data of the 1990 census and other statistics into a revealing look at life in late 20th-century United States. The seven chapters cover such broad subjects as demographics, politics, health, and the economy. An intriguing chaper is devoted to "Contentious Issues" and how Congress voted on them. There is a separate section detailing source material for the maps in addition to a generous bibliography and an excellent index. The only drawback is that the text supporting the maps is written in a style that, in an attempt to be natural, sometimes seems flat. Recommended for any library that benefited from Mark T. Mattson's similar Atlas of the 1990 Census (LJ 4/1/93).-Bruce Rosenstein, "USA Today" Lib., Arlington, Va.
School Library Journal
YA-School librarians as well as social studies and science teachers will revel in the abundance of interesting data put forth in this atlas of social, economic, ethnic, political, and ``contentious'' issues. Most of the contemporary topics students are researching are covered here: the environment, personal freedom, health, crime, the poor and/or homeless, etc. The maps are beautifully drawn and colored, the information is easily accessible, and often further interepretation by graph or chart is included. The maps offer a fascinating insight into contemporary society: which areas of the country are likely to prosper during the 90s and why; where different immigrant groups have settled; etc. Each turn of the page brings answers to a new question. The appendix includes the census questionnaire and Congressional votes relating to some of the maps.-Ginny Ryder, Lee High School, Springfield, VA
Booknews
Clear maps, with commentary, show various aspects of the country's demographic patterns; ethnic, linguistic, and religious divisions; environment and quality of life; politics; economy; health; and contentious issues, e.g. abortion, equal rights, job equality, housing segregation, drug arrest rate, capital punishment, schoolbook censorship, and teacher pay. A fun browse, and an excellent reference. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
