Reviews

"Each volume is well illustrated with b&w photos and reproductions that enhance the text. Because of its timeliness and ease of use, this set will be a welcome edition to any high-school reference collection. Highly recommended." -- Book Report (2/1/2000)

— Judith M. Garner

"American Civil Rights is an excellent example of the quality and integrity educators have come to expect from GaleGroup publications. The Almanac, which is presented in two volumes, examines the historical background as well as present-day significant events and situations related to a wide variety of demographic groups. Illustrations and sidebars containing pertinent information accompany the text." -- Infotech (March 2001)
