"The text is easy to read and largely jargon-free; acronyms are explained or defined within the text so that readers do not have to go to a glossary. Ideal for high school students working on their social studies projects and for first-year college and university history students as a quick reference; recommended for high school and community college libraries as well as for all public libraries."
Library Journal (August 2007)
"Netzley adds substantial value with a highly detailed index and extensive list of works consulted."
-- School Library Journal (August 2002)
"Articles vary in length, from just a paragraph to several pages. When appropriate, the article ends with - see also - references. The table of contents and index assist the user in finding topics quickly and efficiently. The text is easy to comprehend."
-- Booklist (July 2002)
"Books are sturdy and well-designed. The writing should be accessible to advance-placement middle-school students and above. These volumes would be suited to school libraries and to public libraries serving middle-school and high school students."
