MEDIA REVIEWS
"Entries are deep and nuanced, but they are intended for the general reader and readily explain the subject's significance. Recommended for highschool, academic, and public libraries." - Booklist
"This two-volume set provides a great deal of information on the history of the lands bordering the Atlantic Ocean, following their discovery by Europeans. . . . Libraries of all kinds will find this a useful set. . . . For libraries at several levels, this will provide 'student and interested nonspecialist readers' (p. xiv) an introduction to this fascinating and important world. The book is available both in print and as an eBook and is quite readable." - ARBA
