Overview

Encyclopedia of the United States Cabinet covers the history of each cabinet department and all the individuals who served as cabinet secretaries, from the founding of the republic to the present. The work is organized into 20 chapters covering all cabinet departments and offices, with each chapter providing a thorough overview of the department or office, then detailed biographical and historical entries of each of the individuals who have occupied the top position in that department. Readers will gain insight into the workings of politics and government over time, while learning truly fascinating facts at the same time.

Cabinet overviews detail the history and evolution of each department, including departments that no longer exist or have been merged into other departments. The book also charts the political maneuvering that preceded the creation of some departments and evaluates the importance of each office at key periods in its history.

"This encyclopedia is the first work of its kind devoted entirely to the history of the United States Cabinet and its secretaries. Arranged alphabetically by cabinet department, it provides a history of the department and detailed biographical and historical entires of the members who served in some of the nation's highest positions. Also available as an e-book, it is a truly outstanding source filled with facts about the U.S. Cabinet."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2001.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This well-researched encyclopedia is essential for academic libraries, but might also serve high school and public libraries."

-

Gale Reference Reviews

"…an outstanding, comprehensive reference tool … succeeds in filling a gap in the literature concerning biographical information about cabinet members in American government and, therefore, is highly recommended."

-

American Reference Books Annual

"…clearly written, informative, and accessible to the average reader … This fine work belongs in all public libraries."

-

Library Journal

"To find the material needed for such a book must have been a monumental task; to make it readable and yes, even fascinating is Herculean! … Most academic libraries will find it indispensable for history and political science students and faculty. Large public libraries will also want a copy."

-

Booklist

"Unique and timely, this resource is recommended for public and academic libraries."

Library Journal
ABC-CLIO published Grossman's first edition of this encyclopedia in 2000. In addition to adding the cabinet officers of the two presidents since then, this edition reorganizes the entries by presidential administration rather than by department and expands the appendixes to provide more contextual information about the cabinet secretaries. Grossman has authored a number of encyclopedias covering subjects such as the Persian gulf war, the civil rights movement, capital punishment, the Native American rights movement, and political corruption in America. For each of the 55 presidential administrations, there are historical snapshots for each year that include major events and an introductory essay describing the cabinet. An approximately two-page entry on each cabinet secretary follows describing the person's life prior to entering the cabinet, an overview of his activities in the office, then his life after leaving government service. Each essay also includes a list of references for cited materials. There is an extensive bibliography but not a list a suggested readings for each entry. BOTTOM LINE This well-constructed and well-written encyclopedia would be an asset to academic and large public libraries. Although there are added materials in the second edition, the first edition should be sufficient for most libraries that already own.—Ryan Johnson, Univ. of Mississippi, Oxford

This three-volume reference covers the history of each cabinet department and all the individuals who served as cabinet secretaries from the founding of the republic to the present, including those who served with the Confederacy. Organized into 20 chapters and arranged alphabetically, it discusses all cabinet departments and offices, including those that no longer exist or have been merged. An overview of the department or office is followed by detailed biographical and historical entries relating to each of the individuals who have occupied the top position in that department. The entries also chart the political maneuvering that preceded the creation of some departments and evaluate the importance of each office at key periods in history. Annotation c.
