Considering the complexity of the topics, these titles do a remarkable job of presenting brief, understandable discussions. Five chapters each conclude with an FYI page featuring a person or topic, such as "The Battle of Jutland" (World War I ) and "Drugstores as Social Centers" (Scopes Trial ). Vintage photos add interest, but captions mostly repeat the texts. World War I has at least three typographical errors. These titles could be considered as general purchases, but more than likely should be for specific needs.
