From School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-This series objectively examines some of the most important decisions of the last 100 years. The books open with a synopsis of the decision and then provide background that explains how the historical situation and each subject's personality, experiences, political circumstances, country's cultural background, and range of possible choices factored into his final choice. They close with analysis about the intended and unintended results of the decision and its positive and negative historical consequences. Brief biographies, photos, quotations, informational sidebars, and "What Do You Think?" critical-thinking prompts supplement the texts. While these topics have received wide extant coverage, this set's focus provides a fresh perspective that will help readers better understand the complexity that is always part of the political and international decision-making process.
