Author and historian Don Rittner has composed a thorough and highly readable history of Troy's development across three centuries. With over 100 black-and-white illustrations and many fascinating stories, Troy: A Collar City History remembers and celebrates the changing face of a city marked by industry, the arts, and a people pursuing their American dreams. Readers of all ages, both longtime natives and newcomers, will find this work an informative and entertaining portrait of Troy and its place in the greater American experience.From Booklist:
Intended for use by high-school and undergraduate students, this 2,000-entry encyclopedia contains a good selection of chemical terms. Some of the entries are biographical, but it is not clear how the individual names were selected. Many seem to be in fields other than chemistry, and some prominent names, such as Friedrich Beilstein and Leopold Gmelin, are not included. Entries are generally brief, most ranging from a single sentence to half of a page. Cross-references aid navigation. There are more than 150 black-and-white photographs, illustrations, and charts.
The 20-page bibliography is current to 2003. Other appended material includes a small sampling of chemistry-related Web sites, a brief listing of chemistry software sources, a list of Nobel Prize winners in chemistry, the periodic table of elements, and charts showing chemical reaction types and metals and alloys. An interesting addition is "a set of essays by today's chemists on the role chemistry plays in our daily lives, ranging from how chemistry helps solve crimes to how it provides dyes for our latest fashions." These four essays are randomly inserted throughout the book.
This would be a good encyclopedia for high-school and public libraries to round out a collection that also contains other Facts On File publications such as Encyclopedia of Biology (2004) and Encyclopedia of Physics (2004). For research-oriented users, the Van Nostrand's Encyclopedia of Chemistry, 5th edition (Wiley, 2005), would be the recommended choice. H. Robert Malinowski
