With their scope, depth, and breadth consistent with high school media center collections, these two-volume sets attempt to balance the biographical, political, geographical, military, social, legal, and economic aspects of U.S. and world history in a clear and concise manner. Each contains approximately 400 A-to-Z entries, including subject entries and biographies that average about 1000 words in length, as well as 300-plus images, maps, further reading lists, and an index. Each set starts off with an introduction that consists of a reader's guide, glossary, and chronology. The clean, crisp images accompanying the text in all volumes provide a lens into the time periods covered in each set.
