Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The books in this series, which began in 1972, profile the national and international events of the year in question through primary-source documents. The passages are excerpted from a variety of sources, including the White House, Congress, and other U.S. and international governmental and nongovernmental organizations. The subjects are accessible in several ways. In the front of the volume, events and documents are listed in a month-by-month table of contents; a second listing breaks down the issues thematically (e.g., "American Life," "Business," "The Economy and Labor," "International Affairs by Country"); and the third list is arranged according to document source. At the back of the book is an alphabetical cumulative index for 2006�10. Entries include a "Document in Context" portion that introduces the theme and abstracts of further documents that pertain to it. At the end of each topic are source citations and annotations to material of interest elsewhere in the volume as well as in previous editions in the series. BOTTOM LINE Best for academic libraries and those with collections that include governmental, legal, and/or global issues holdings. Another useful volume in the long-running series.—Christine Sharbrough, Derry P.L., NH
