An impressive encyclopedia of a wide range of topics: people, events, organizations, movements, and ideas. The signed articles average about half a page, are thoroughly cross-referenced, and refer as well to book-length treatments of the subject. Examples of entries are Georgia O'Keefe, menstrual cycle, European influences, Benjamin Rusk, Salem witch trials, Angela Davis, Bette Davis, Radcliffe College, Montana State Federation of Negro Women's Clubs, cigar makers, aviation, slavery, Populist Party, Marine Corps, and Mary Baker Eddy. An excellent quick reference and initial bibliography for students, researchers, and journalists. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
