Race Relations in America: Examining the Facts

A balanced and thorough look at the United States’ most important contemporary race issues, with timely content and excellent supporting documentation.

The Cold War on Film

It’s difficult to decide whom this volume is suited to. The history is accurate but very brief, while the film discussion is largely consumed by plot synopses. Not recommended.

American Revolution: The Essential Reference Guide

A basic but lucid and effective look at the American Revolution, with an emphasis on the major personalities, military maneuvers, and events of the war. General readers and high school students will find it useful.

Pregnancy and Birth

A thoughtful look at issues confronting pregnant Americans. Will appeal to readers who work in think tanks, those involved with public health, and premed, nursing, midwife, and doula students.

The Reagan Revolution and the Rise of the New Right

Though the analysis isn’t groundbreaking, the history of Reagan and his era is told clearly, with useful ancillary material. However, readers who are unfamiliar with U.S. history may come away with an overly rosy view of the Reagan administration.

Jackie Robinson: A Life in American History

Readers interested in history, sports, and Robinson (whether as an athlete or for his work beyond baseball) will learn much from this worthwhile book.

Colonial America: Facts and Fictions

Thoroughly researched, clearly written, and eye-opening in major and minor ways, this book will be valuable not only to academics but to all readers.

Civil Rights and Civil Liberties in America: A Reference Handbook

Well organized and easy to use, the work is a good starting point for information on executive, legislative, and judicial actions taken over the last 200 years to protect and insure individual civil rights. It strikes a strong balance between basic information and specialized content and is an effective resource for students and general readers.

Medicare and Medicaid: A Reference Handbook

Most reference works about Medicare and Medicaid focus on benefits, provider requirements, Medicaid planning and application, health care fraud, or the single-payer concept; this volume sets itself apart, offering a detailed, nuanced look at the debate around public health care. A fascinating, useful book.
