From Booklist: Two volumes meant for middle school and up illustrate the colorful decade of social changes in American life that was the 1920s. The Almanac and Primary Sources volume "presents a comprehensive overview of events and everyday life," while Biographies profiles 25 notable individuals. Both volumes include a time line and glossary at the beginning and a bibliography and index at the end. Writing is clear, and photos and sidebars are sprinkled attractively throughout.

Biographies highlights people from Louis Armstrong to Margaret Sanger in alphabetically arranged articles that are 8 to 12 pages long and cover each individual's background, influence, and, usually, activities even after the decade came to a close. Difficult issues are included, such as Henry Ford's reputed anti-Semitism and recent criticism of Margaret Mead's work in Samoa. Within articles, additional people get full-page treatment. For example, there is a sidebar on Gertrude Eberle within the Jack Dempsey chapter. Indexing isn't thorough; there is no index entry for Billy Sunday although he gets a page in the Aimee Semple McPherson article.

Almanac and Primary Sources includes 9 chapters of narrative on topics such as politics, business, technology, and the arts as well as 11 chapters of primary source materials, among them Clarence Darrow's closing argument from the Leopold and Loeb trial, an excerpt from The Great Gatsby, and a short Langston Hughes poem. Further references include a raft of recent books and Web sites. A nice little feature for students and teachers is the "Research and Activity Ideas" section ("Pretend you are an advertising copywriter working for the Ford Motor Company in the 1920s. Create a brochure to promote sales of Ford cars").

The set is useful, attractive, and less wordy than Gale's American Decades (2003). Buy where there's a need for more information on the 1920s. Susan Gooden
