Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—The narrative in these books is dense but clearly focused, therefore probably better suited to students with a firm foundation in U.S. history. Gold gives an excellent, nonpartisan analysis of the creation and implementation of the Taft-Hartley Act that carefully details its passage and impact in the middle decades of the 20th century. She reviews its subsequent impact on labor unions, employers, and national politics. There is a clear and seamless connection between this volume and Worth's Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Both books reflect their interconnectedness and with other laws put into place during this era, such as the Wagner Act and Roosevelt's Fair Labor Standards law. Freedom of Information touches on George Washington's security needs and actions taken to implement the protection needed at the birth of our country, then moves on to the 1950s and 1960s, and finally focuses on how the FOIA is very much a part of our daily, media-suffused lives as we struggle to understand what the government can and can't hide from its citizens. It even gives a nice break out on "How to File a FOIA Request." The books include comprehensive notes, a clear "From Bill to Law" annotated time line, and limited but pertinent photographs and contemporary art.—Meredith Toumayan, Langley-Adams Library, Groveland, MA
