School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-These overviews open with dramatic accounts of events, such as the Lewis and Clark expedition and the sinking of the USS Maine, which were emblematic of their time periods. McNeese then discusses the people, politics, economic conditions, and foreign affairs of each era, objectively explaining how the attitudes, perceptions, and expectations of the American people and their leaders shaped the development of the country. He wisely does not attempt to cover everything that happened during each period, instead concentrating on its most prominent people and events and providing enough background information and detail to help readers understand the time and its importance. Sidebars, some lengthy, provide additional information about various topics, and each book includes an extensive chronology. Surprisingly, there are no source notes. Average-quality, color period art and photos, maps, and cutaway drawings supplement the texts. Although these books are informative, they often read like expanded chapters in history texts, and they have an advanced vocabulary. They will work well as complements to Debatable Issues in U.S. History (Greenwood, 2004), a similarly arranged set that covers much of the same material but emphasizes the often-contentious debates about the most important issues of each time period. Solid additional choices for report writers.-Mary Mueller, formerly at Rolla Junior High School, MO (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
