Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-These well-edited sourcebooks offer students fascinating details about the campaigns and the times they cover. Each title has an introduction by Schlesinger on the changing nature of presidential races and consists primarily of transcripts of speeches, an essay placing the campaign in context, and addresses and public documents from the administration that took power. While 1948 consists mostly of campaign speeches, 1960 includes more public statements on postelection developments, such as the Cuban Missile Crisis. Sidebars provide lucid, objective commentary on the speeches and the further reading sections are extensive (if adult in level). Illustrations, mainly in color, depict posters and other memorabilia. Serious report writers will appreciate these attractively designed, erudite but readable books and will make use of the many excellent quotations.-Jonathan Betz-Zall, City University Library, Everett, WA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
