Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This five-volume set comprises a Biographies volume, a two-volume Almanac, a Primary Sources volume, and a 34-page Cumulative Index. Volume 1 of the Almanac describes in 11 chapters different types of prejudice, their history, their causes, and their consequences, while Volume 2 features 11 case studies of prejudice throughout the world, from Rwanda to Northern Ireland (four deal with U.S. events), focusing mostly on the 20th century. Primary Sources contains 16 excerpted documents (e.g., magazine/news articles; United Nations reports; personal accounts) arranged around various kinds of prejudice, e.g., ethnic, racial, and religious. The essays in Biographies describe the lives of 25 individuals who either fought against or promoted prejudice in some way-from antiapartheid activist Nelson Mandela on one side to SS Commander Heinrich Himmler on the other. The cumulative index is divided into the following sections: "Toleration," "Prejudices," "Intergroup Relations," "Ethnic Relations," and "Race Relations." More than 120 black-and-white photos serve to expand readers' understanding of the issues discussed and the individuals described.
