KIRKUS REVIEW

For librarians and booksellers with an eye to supplying the needs of youngsters doing summer make-up work in American history, or for family reference material, these textbooks, double-listed for trade, are worth some attention. Both books are handsomely illustrated- THE MAKING OF MODERN AMERICA has some stunning plates and charts -- and the material is arranged and decorated in an attractive ""broken up"" style to encourage browsing. Both texts cover material through the 1948 election, and the style is simple and informal. THE MAKING OF MODERN AMERICA has more meat for reference.
