Historical Dictionaries of U.S. Politics and Political Eras
There is a lot to like about Scarecrow's various Historical Dictionaries series. -Booklist This rapidly growing series will eventually cover the whole sweep of American history from the earliest colonial settlements to almost the present day. Each volume deals with a relatively compact era and interfaces with the preceding and following period. While the volumes reaching further back often span several decades, more recent ones are limited to the administration of one or two presidents. In addition to those dealing with historical periods, several volumes will also be devoted to specific aspects of U.S. politics or institutions, such as political parties, the U.S. Congress and Supreme Court. All volumes contain a list of acronyms, chronology and introductory essay as well more often than not as maps, appendixes, and sometimes photographs. But obviously the most important section is the -dictionary,+ which has hundreds of cross-referenced entries on particularly significant persons, places, events, institutions, and issues as well as more general ones on the political, economic, societal, cultural and foreign policy aspects of the era or institution. While providing good insight into the period or topic these books can be even more useful when read together with relevant volumes in the War series, dealing with among others the American Revolution, Civil War, World Wars I and II, the Iraq and Afghan wars. More background can also be found in the series of Historical Dictionaries of Diplomacy and Foreign Policy.
