Subtitled, A comprehensive A-to-Z guide to the important people, places, events and ideas that have shaped the contemporary world . The formidable tasks of selection and compaction seem to have been accomplished with skillful eyes for what information must be included to give readers a basic understanding of a subject in relation to the 20th century and what might be included to pique curiousity and convey "flavor". Eight thousand entries, many (but not most) with at least a few references for further reading, are interspersed with sensibly selected b&w photos one or two per spread. Includes cross-references and a detailed index. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
