"Another in Gale's World of series and edited by the Lerners, this set is the best so far. Entries are readable, providing information both basic and in depth. The most valuable portions are the biographies and the chronology... The editors make excellent use of photographs... Highly recommended. Public, community college, and undergraduate libraries."
"...The text is written in a clear and easily understood style...recommended for purchase by academic and public libraries."
