Adding to this extensive series, Shally-Jensen (Salem's "Careers" and "Defining Documents" titles) presents readers (most likely students) with 38 primary source documents. Entries feature a summary overview, analysis at several levels, essential themes, and sources for additional reading. The documents range in length from a few paragraphs ("Zimmerman Telegram") to several pages ("Covenant of the League of Nations") and are arranged by category and, within each category, chronologically. Appendixes include chronological cross-references, web resources, and a comprehensive bibliography. Purchase of the print volume provides users access to the ebook version.
VERDICT The dual access points make this well-organized volume a strong option for research at the high school and college levels.
