Library Journal - Library Journal
This is a clear and concise survey of colonial and revolutionary history in dictionary form. The short entries cover all aspects, with many biographies. Coverage appears to be excellent. Not only are women included, but also topics in North America beyond the Eastern seaboard. Some of the major articles are longer (up to three pages), and many are signed and include current references to other sources. There are also cross-references in many entries to related topics. The review copy contained none of the illustrative materials (there are to be some 150 illustrations including maps), but one expects them to be of comparable quality. Those libraries without a Dictionary of American History and a current Encyclopedia Americana should consider this a priority purchase.-- Edward Gibson, Alderson-Broaddus Coll. Lib., Philippi, W.V.
A quick reference to the ideas, events, people, and developments that defined the Anglo-American colonial experience. Some 1,500 alphabetically arranged entries cover the period from the earliest settlements in the late 16th century to the 1783 Treaty of Paris, which concluded the Revolutionary War. With maps and other graphics. For general readers and school libraries. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
