Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This volume in the 'Witness to History" series mixes historical fact, old photographs and personal accounts to bring that sad chapter in our nation's history to life for older elementary and middle school students. The complicated social and economic factors that led to the Depression are explained in detail using appropriate vocabulary enhanced by the inclusion of a glossary. It is a fascinating story that is well researched and interestingly told. It is difficult for students today to imagine what life was like during these times, but this volume is a perfect beginning for exploring this complex event and its far-reaching effects. The photos alone are eye opener. An index and sources for further study are included. 2003, Heinemann Library, Ages 9 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up A well-rounded account of the 1930s in the U.S., Britain, and continental Europe. Harris uses biographies, with accompanying background information, of people who were either victims, witnesses, protesters, saviors, or cultural leaders during the tumultuous era: such notables as authors Studs Terkel and Christopher Isherwood, reporter William L. Shirer, propagandist Joseph Goebbels, and artist-photographer Ben Shahn are among the subjects of the 14 biographies presented. Prolific use is made of quotations from the biographees' own words and other primary sources. Furthermore, the text is profusely illustrated with well-chosen, informative black-and-white reproductions of contemporary photographs, cartoons, posters, and other artwork. A helpful glossary, short chronology, reading list of adult titles, and useful index are appended. A few unexplained Briticisms are sprinkled throughout, but they don't mar this well-written book. David A. Lindsey, Lakewood Junior/Senior High School, Wash.
