George Washington: Creating a Nation
Wim Coleman
0766022900
June 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8–This biographical survey opens rather weakly with an account of a latent Revolutionary War mutiny that Washington apparently squashed by putting on a pair of spectacles and thereby emotionally overwhelming his men. The unlikelihood of this episode grabbing young people is something to consider, as is the content that follows. The first several chapters dryly chronicle Washington's years growing up and rising through the colonial military ranks. Next, readers learn of his experience in the Virginia House of Burgesses, family life, slave ownership, and return to the military where his pivotal role in the American Revolution is, of course, featured. Ten pages are devoted to his presidency. Sidebars, period black-and-white reproductions, and primary-source references appear throughout. This title...

From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8–Using major historical landmarks as their destinations, these books use events, people, and dates to transport readers to various points in America's past. The Alamo's relevance to Texas's history is outlined with a time line of the actual siege and highlighted with references to many of the important players, including David Crockett and Jim Bowie. Williamsburg and Independence Park are each described with an emphasis placed upon points of interest that could be visited both virtually and in real life. The strength of these titles is in the inclusion of Web sites that have been evaluated by the publisher and deemed safe and appropriate for student use, although a few of them have advertisements. Using links and passwords identified in the books, students are encouraged to employ these sites...


The American Civil War

Book Description
As the American historian Bruce Catton once wrote, the Civil war "was not an ending but a beginning"--not a quaint, romantic memory, but an enduring, living presence. The debates in this book deal with many issues of importance today, including states rights, civil rights, and the nature of American government. One cannot understand the history of the U.S. without understanding the history and controversies of the Civil War.

Osama Bin Laden

Hardcover

From School Library Journal
Grade 11 Up-Despite the editors' claims to the contrary, this collection of articles, book excerpts, speeches, and documents is far above the interest and ability of most high school students, and many adults will find it both difficult and flawed. The glossary is incomplete both in terms and definitions, omitting such important entries as Allah and the Koran. The maps are so limited as to be nearly useless; the one of the Middle East only identifies countries (no cities), and many places crucial to bin Laden's career are nowhere to be found. No explanation is given for alternate, seemingly contradictory spellings-until readers get to the back matter. Other internal inconsistencies aren't addressed, while numerous allusions, phrases, and references (leftist and quasi-Marxist students, holistic hermeneutics,...
