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, 222p. bibliog. index.,

Gr 9 Up-Does it really matter whether Leif Eriksson or Christopher Columbus was the first European to arrive on these shores? What if it wasn't either one of them, but some wandering Celtic, Libyan, or Basque sailor who first brought the Old World to the New? This eye-opening volume tosses the brisk salt spray of reality in the face of stale scholastic tradition and creates a kind of montage history of America from prehistory to 1607. Divided into five chapters-"First Inhabitants," "First Contact," "First Explorations," "The Second Wave of Exploration," and "The Europeans Vie for Control"-it presents a wide array of voices and opinions. Each chapter includes several four- to seven-page excerpts from primary or secondary sources, including myths, journal entries, letters, and histories. The table of contents is annotated; there is a three-page chronology, a six-page list for further reading, and a clear-eyed introduction that sets the stage beautifully for the rest of the book. While almost everything here can be found elsewhere, and whole portions come from the "Discovering American History" and "American Eras" series (both Gale), it is great to have all of these resources pulled together in one book.-Herman Sutter, Saint Agnes Academy, Houston, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
