School Library Journal
Gr 5�8—These brief books are a bit dated now as Osama Bin Laden is featured prominently in Fundamentalism and Terrorism. However, their emphasis on providing overviews, coupled with approachable texts, will make them useful to those who need a jump-start on the topics. Chapters are divided into the history, causes, impact, responses, media attention, and future of the featured subject. Every chapter offers a "Stop Press" page that features a "Case Study." For instance, in Terrorism, the chapter on the impact of terrorism has a spread on one of the survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. Lengthy glossaries are helpful inclusions, but the indexes are paltry. Color photos abound and help to make these good browsing books. Information for research can be found, but will prove either initial or supplemental, depending upon how much is needed.—Carol Fazioli, Gwynedd-Mercy College, Gwynedd Valley, PA
