Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Following closely on the heels of Chronicle of the World (LJ 1/97) and updating the 1995 edition (LJ 9/15/95), Chronicle of America (meaning the United States) continues the use of a journalistic reporting style to recount history. Sandwiched between the arrival of the Inuits (40,000 B.C.E.) and the class-action suit against tobacco companies of April 1997 are thousands of political, social, artistic/entertainment, and natural events presented in newspaper-column format. Some of the headlines are not without humor, e.g., "Low on beer, Mayflower lands in Massachusetts" is followed by a dateline of "New Plymouth, Dec. 1620." Livening up the text and encouraging browsing are thousands of color illustrations. Readers are alerted to subsequent developments about an event or person through references to a future date. The index is detailed and descriptive, and added features include brief sketches and portraits of the states and complete texts of important historical documents. There are some minor errors, and a few items unrelated to America e.g., Gutenberg's invention and the death of Queen Maryare inexplicably included. As with its world counterpart, this reference work will be popular for secondary school and academic collections.Stanley P. Hodge, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, Ind.
