The Gale Encyclopedia of U.S. History consists of a series of 2-volume encyclopedias that provides a broad overview of one particular topic throughout American history, from pre-colonial times until today, with special emphasis placed on how the topic---whether war or government and politics---effects, and is affected by, political, economic, and social change in American and global society.
Each set is organized chronologically, by era or event, into 10-15 chapters. Each chapter features an introductory essay on the era or event followed by entries grouped under consistent subheads.
Each set consists of approximately 400 entries, including subject entries and biographies; 300-350 images, including maps; a chronology; a glossary; sources for further study; and a general index.
"Each set is enhanced by black-and-white photos and illustrations. Both have a clear, concise and logical format and will be sueful for classroom assignments or informative reading."
