As with other books in the series, this compact work compiles significant information in a single volume. An introduction sets the stage, followed by alphabetical entries (Cold War, Rock and Roll), each with a source for further reading. Olson (history, Sam Houston State Univ.) and Gumpert (1960s) conclude with primary sources and analysis, with tips for document-based questions (DBQs). A chronology, appendixes, and further reading sources aid in research.
VERDICT Of particular use for those studying advanced placement history. Consider for high school and college libraries, and as a teacher resource.
