Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Greenhaven Press puts together anthologies that cover history and public events in a wide variety of ways. The People Who Made History series is a fine addition to their catalogue. The plan follows other Greenhaven projects: The books have four or five chapters each, which include three to six excerpted essays and can be used by students in grades 9-12. Individual pieces run anywhere from two to ten pages each. Each section and each item has introductory material. This series also includes an appendix of document excerpts. The mixed focus on the personal life and public issues and controversies is effectively handled here. The use of a person to make a historical period come alive in rich depth is accomplished with real skill and finesse. (People Who Made History) KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Greenhaven. illus, bibliog, 240p, 23cm, $17.45. Ages 16 to adult.
