Critique: One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 2010

"Encyclopedias are both invitations to explore and tools to find particular information. The Princeton Encyclopedia of American Political History amply fulfills both of those functions. . . . [M]any of these contributing historians, journalists, and social scientists are those whose opinions academics seek and cite. . . . [M]asterful. . . . [A]n important source for researchers at all levels to consult for introductory information." --Choice

"[T]his encyclopedia offers accessible, thorough, and enlightening coverage of political history in the U.S. from colonial times through the 'conservative ascendancy' period, which ended 2008 with the election of Barak Obama. . . . The use of varying fonts and types makes the work visually appealing. Highly recommended for those interested in politics and history in public and academic libraries." --Booklist

"Broad in scope, this two-volume encyclopedia covers the major forces that have shaped American politics from the founding to today." --Blackwells Recommends

"[This] is a fine specimen of modern bookwork: the two quarto volumes are well printed on thick paper, the pages are sewn and firmly anchored and the text block is sandwiched between heavy boards. If it is not abused, this set should last a hundred years. It is written in plain English and easy to use." --John Kendall, Reference Reviews
