YA?Brief newspaperlike articles of social, political, and cultural events surround monthly chronologies and present a concise picture of the events and the way of life at the time. The present edition copies the original through 1987 and moves forward through May 21, 1995. The photographs, usually in color, and maps draw attention to the articles and present additional information. Every available space is used: photographs of magazine advertisements offer additional details. The copious index refers to dates, not page numbers. The tight binding will prohibit xeroxing of interior columns and make rebinding difficult while the full nine pounds of weight puts a significant strain on that sewing. Still, it's a great resource and a fun, educational choice for browsing.?Claudia Moore, W.T. Woodson High School. Fairfax, VA

A whirlwind journalistic tour through the 20th century, this was selected by the American and Canadian Booksellers Associations as "The 1987 Book of the Year." The news stories are written in a "You Are There" style by a team of 30 of today's news reporters, with many illustrations and cross references to later developments. There is an extensive index, and annual updates are scheduled. Unfortunately, directions for using this are found only on the back flap of the book jacket. This could be a problem, as the cross-reference system is somewhat confusing, leading either to a brief calendar or an article or (in some cases) an entirely inaccurate citation. Contemporary accounts or an encyclopedia will better serve researchers and students. Anne Washburn, Julius C. Smith Law Lib., Greensboro, N.C.
