Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
The team at DK Publishing has, yet again, put together an expansive look at a single subject which encompasses a wide range of ideas relating to the general topic. This title is packaged with a CD of "clip art" comprised of captioned photos/illustrations of the history of voting (and other aspects of democracy) and a large, folded poster which states "The vote is key to any democratic system of government." Both of these materials will prove very helpful to instructors and students. In the usual style of the Eyewitness books, the reader is treated to a dense accumulation of facts and historical notes, illustrated with real photos and reproductions of historical memorabilia, such as statuary, art, newspapers, maps, flags, clothing, and artifacts, as well as graphs and diagrams. The layout is packed with information, but is not distractingly cluttered for those accustomed to the DK "look." Covering everything from the earliest traditions for the expression of people's preferences in leadership to our current systems of voting not only in the U.S. but around the world. Readers are stimulated to examine how and why people vote as well as the privilege and responsibility of exercising "the vote." Examining the history of elections requires examining history in general, so this is a volume rich in details about how we arrived at our present system of elections. Few people will read this from cover to cover; many will approach this information-filled volume with an eye for "sampling" here and there. Tucked in with the facts and history are wonderfully interesting quotes and tidbits to whet the reader's interest in this fascinating subject. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
School Library Journal

Gr 4-8- Engaging visual material and a wealth of assorted facts trace the history of voting and its impact on human rights, politics, and other related areas. The first half moves chronologically from ancient Greece to modern times, with current information into the 21st century. Later sections look at political structures, election logistics, and even nongovernmental elections (including trade unions, the Oscars, and Britain's Pop Idol ). Several high-quality photographs and reproductions appear on each spread. Though not tremendously exciting on their own, they still contribute great appeal and represent the text well. The "polling day" spread, for example, depicts a variety of voting implements, from a gold-tipped pointing stick used in the republic of Venice to a keypad from 2007 Bhutan. Nearly every section draws upon assorted examples from around the world, providing a strong international framework. One spread, for example, shows seven recent scenes of varied "protest" events, each from a different country. In some cases, the information is too cursory to be of much use, such as a paragraph on the electoral college that might confuse more than clarify. As a whole, though, the book does a nice job of pulling together an impressive array of topics, events, and ideas within the broad concept of global suffrage. The book comes with a poster-size wall chart and a clip-art CD with downloadable images of many of the illustrations.-Steven Engelfried, Multnomah County Library, OR
