Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up

Though neither of these works is essential, they will be handy reference sources in schools with diversity programs or Latino literature classes. Both sets contain signed entries and provide mainly one- to three-page biographical sketches, with some ancillary articles on movements and topics. The writing is routine in both; Greenwood has the edge in visual appeal, given its inclusion of many black-and-white author photographs, whereas the Facts On File volume is a bit more student-friendly, focusing on individual works. Academically, Greenwood provides more heft, not only in its sheer number of pages, but also through its lengthy essays that analyze related themes, movements, and historical events ("Chicana Liberation," "Immigrant Literature," "Language choice," "Land Grants," etc). Much of the information in both works can be accessed through Gale's Literature Resource Center or EBSCO's Literary Reference Center. For easy access to major works and figures, get the Facts On File book; for in-depth analysis and added information, choose Greenwood .-Herman Sutter, Saint Agnes Academy, Houston, TX
