Editorial Reviews

In each volume of the "American History by Era" series, articles from primary and secondary sources describe important events and cultural trends of each era. For example, Post-Cold War America includes articles on the Rodney King verdict, gangsta rap, Waco (by Janet Reno), the O.J. Simpson trial, television comedy, the Columbine massacre, President Clinton's impeachment, the 2000 election dispute, the collapse of Enron, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the war on terrorism (from a speech by George W. Bush) and war in Afghanistan, among other topics. (It doesn't go as far as the recent war in Iraq, ending in January 2002). Each article has a succinct introduction that provides a summary of its contents, and notes are included. Each volume includes an annotated table of contents, a detailed chronology, and a bibliography organized by topic, all of which will help students in researching subjects in history and social studies. The inclusion of primary sources makes this series an especially useful addition to classrooms or school libraries. KLIATT Codes: SA�Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Greenhaven, 272p. bibliog. index.,
