Grade 9 Up-A collection of alphabetically arranged essays selected from the Encyclopedia of Sociology (Macmillan, 1991) and from the Supplement to the Dictionary of American History (S & S, 1996) that focuses on a broad range of social problems, institutions, and relationships. The clearly written articles were chosen for their accessibility and "relevance to the twenty-first century." They cover such topics as the "Human Rights Movement," "Juvenile Delinquency and Juvenile Crime," and "Multiculturalism." Some of the entries have been revised and data has been updated. A table of contents and a good index allow for easy access to the material. The essays are well documented and most have see-also references. Many of the titles in the extensive bibliographies are from scholarly journals. Occasional black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and charts accompany the text. A fine addition to libraries, especially in communities with budget constraints that prohibit the purchase of the complete set.
