Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-The articles in this set are culled from Magill's Great Events from History II: Human Rights (Salem, 1992), with 10 additional entries covering 1993 to 2001, including the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Subjects range from the genocide of Armenians in World War I to the end of Augusto Pinochet's rule in Chile in 1989. Not every article documents an actual violation; one entry covers the United Nations's formulation of rules for treatment of prisoners, in 1955. An impressive, up-to-date, annotated bibliography concludes each article. Users can access information through a geographical, category, name, or subject index. Average-quality, black-and-white photos are included. The set provides concise, well-researched information, while the annotated bibliographies themselves are worth the purchase price.-Carol Fazioli, formerly at The Brearley School, New York City Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
