This four-volume set addresses not only basic subjects ordinarily covered in middle and secondary school, but a wide range of contemporary issues. Two-hundred alphabetically arranged articles vary in length from 500 to 2,500 words, each opening with a clear statement defining the subject of the essay and summarizing its significance in American government. Emphasis is on how government and politics actually work at the local, state, and national levels. Essays are cross-referenced and are supplemented by mini-essays illuminating specific issues. Generously illustrated with about 350 b&w photographs as well as charts, maps, and tables. The index is in Volume IV. c. Book News Inc.
