For this update to the 1990 edition, Findling and Pelle (coauthors, Fair America) bring together the work of nearly 75 field scholars, who recount details of the 100 international fairs and expositions mounted since 1851. Organized by date and location, entries are fully revised, highly detailed, multipage essays describing examples of commerce, culture, and nationalist competitions. Also included are entries for the September 2008 Fair in Zaragoza, Spain, and the 2010 Shanghai Exposition. Excellent period illustrations appear throughout the book. Recommended for history collections.
