A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Discusses events in politics, economics, culture, and recreation.

From School Library Journal:

YA-Events during the 1980s as they affected the U.S., other continents, and the world in general are covered in these hefty two volumes. The entries-addressing politics, economics, culture, and recreation-are mostly complete, but there are some exceptions, e.g., for Dec. 3, 1989, "The universities of Virginia and Santa Clara share the National Collegiate Athletic Assoc. Division I championship after playing to a 1-1 tie in the finals." What sport were they playing? A reference book without an index is nearly useless, and this book's is so inadequate that it is not reliable. Also, it's placed at the end of the second volume, and since each tome weighs nine pounds, it is awkward handling both. Under the main topic "Challenger," there are three references, none for the day of the disaster, Jan. 28, 1986. At least 12 other entries about the Challenger are not indexed. For the "Lockerbie air crash," there are three references, but four entries. The only entry listed for the Football Strike is Sept. 30, 1982, but it began Sept. 21 and there are at least five other entries that are not indexed. Main topics are not highlighted in bold, which causes difficulty in reading long columns with many subtopics. Libraries should consider carefully if their need for this type of information outweighs its shoddy indexing.
