The entries are clearly written, using vocabulary accssible to students and giving enough background information without being patronizing to the reader. Middle school students will find the information contained within these volumes to be more than adequate for their needs. Because of the large number of titles offered as additional resources throughout the set, and the supplementary material appended to the articles themselves, high-school students and adults using these volumes for research will find them to be an informative starting point."

"The well developed index will help locate details within the broader articles. This set is a second-level resource, the bridge from rudimentary factual and descriptive sources to in-depth research. Its prose has been edited for a high school audience, it is quite readable and it is likely to spark further investigation. Highly recommended. "
