School Library Journal Review

Gr 10 Up-Eight in-depth essays, including "Political Movies" and "Entertaining News and Political News Satire," provide concise history and objective analyses that will be useful for reports. For example, "Politics Online" opens with a short history of the Internet and then discusses its impact on the American political landscape under such subheadings as "Social Networking and the Democratization of Media" and "Political Blogs." Following these essays are shorter, alphabetically arranged entries covering past and present aspects of political culture. The browsing opportunities alone are worth the purchase price, but students will be particularly grateful for articles on outlets such as CNN and NPR, media portrayals of the recent presidents, various figures in entertainment who are or were politically active (Chris Rock, John Lennon), TV shows, and such concepts as "Apple Pie (as symbol)." The index and the selected bibliography are extensive, and the latter lists many recent articles that can be read for free online. An ebook version, available for separate purchase (pricing available from the publisher by request), provides the same text, which can be read sequentially or searched by keyword. In addition, many terms within the text are hyperlinked, but this feature is unreliable. Clicking on a term usually results in being brought to the relevant text, but sometimes users are given a linked citation (e.g., clicking on "Facebook" in the "Politics Online" section returns the linked result "See Part 1, Chapter 8."); and some links lead to unrelated information.-Henrietta Thornton-Verma, School Library Journal (c) Copyright 2010.
