MEDIA REVIEWS
"Overall, the articles are well written, well researched, and informative, and provide a balanced view of the war. . . . The main draws of the student edition are more readable format and the increased and varied visual content, including tables, maps, and illustrations. . . . [ American Revolutionary War: A Student Encyclopedia] is only recommended for school libraries that would greatly benefit from the additional visual materials. The Encyclopedia of the American Revolutionary War is recommended for all libraries." - Library Journal
"Overall, the student version of the encyclopedia is a little different than the main encyclopedia. In addition to having fewer entries and a more open-looking design, it offers a student-centered resource area containing a categorical index, a list of preapproved scholarly websites, and a brief section on how to conduct effective historical research, including the use of primary sources and maps." - Booklist
"This new encyclopedia is destined to become the standard reference on the American Revolution. . . . High school libraries will want to give serious consideration to the student edition of this work." - Against the Grain
"American Revolutionary War will be most useful for high school and public libraries." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
"The Student Encyclopedia should become a standard source for high schools and colleges, as well as for those public libraries with a student clientele or patrons with a penchant for history." -
