Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up. This volume includes information on the people, places, and events of importance during the Reagan-Bush presidential era. Each article has a list of suggested readings and related entries at the end. Black-and-white photographs appear throughout the book, but some of them are fuzzy and dark. There are plenty of graphs, tables, and figures that delineate election results, distribution of workers, inflation, and a misery index. Levy takes an objective stance and his narrative is easy to read. A useful title for research.?Maureen Connelly, New York Public Library

From Library Journal

Levy (Let Freedom Ring: A Documentary History of the Modern Civil Rights Movement, LJ 4/1/92) here uses a detailed dictionary approach to the personalities and political events of 1980-1992. The more than 250 entries, arranged alphabetically, range from abortion to yuppies, with many predictable items in between: the B-1 Bomber, the Challenger disaster, Grenada, homelessness, the Iran-Contra affair, the moral majority, the Persian Gulf War, and Reaganomics, to name a few. There is even a brief entry for broccoli! In addition to all the major political figures of the period, other influential names appear (e.g., Oliver North, Robert Bork, John Sununu), and there are few surprises (e.g., Ivan Boesky, Donald Trump, Lee Iacocca, and Bernard Goetz.) However, several less-visible cabinet members are not included (e.g., Lauro Cavazos, James Watkins, and Robert Mosbacher). Except for major events and people, the entries are several paragraphs long and take a neutral tone. Most entries contain cross references, and all include citations to suggested readings. A useful timeline of key events and a statistical profile of the Reagan-Bush years offering mostly economic indicators round out the book. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.?Thomas A. Karel, Franklin & Marshall Coll. Lib., Lancaster, Pa.,
