Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This set is similar in size and format to its companion sets, The Sixties in America and The Fifties in America, also edited by Super. Aimed at a high school and undergraduate audience, the three volumes contain 672 articles on the significant people, events, and popular culture of the decade. Almost every aspect of American life is covered, from abortion to Watergate; from Annie Hall to Roots. The articles each range in length from 500 to 3000 words, and many contain black-and-white photographs that will be nostalgic for readers of a certain age. A sample entry that demonstrates the usefulness of this resource is the one for Jimmy Carter. It fills almost four pages and summarizes his early life, his campaign for the presidency, and his term. Besides his official photograph, there is a brief excerpt from his notorious interview with Playboy. Five recent books are suggested for further reading, and there are cross references to 14 other articles in the set. Volume 3 contains a series of useful appendixes that includes a list of major and Academy Award-winning films, the most-watched TV shows, key U.S. legislation and Supreme Court decisions, best-selling books and literary awards, winners of major sports events, and a general time line of events. The five-page annotated bibliography lists books and web sites. There is a glossary of words and phrases introduced in the volumes and a subject arrangement of the articles. Bottom Line This browsable set will serve nicely as a ready-reference source. While it is probably best suited for high school and public libraries, academic libraries may consider it as a companion to the recent scholarly studies that deal with the significance of the Seventies (e.g., Philip Jenkins's Decade of Nightmares: The End of the Sixties and the Making of Eighties America). The set is also a worthy companion to earlier reference works, like Victor Bondi's American Decades: 1970-1979 and James S. Olson's Historical Dictionary of the 1970s.-Thomas A. Karel, Franklin & Marshall Coll. Lib., Lancaster, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
