From School Library Journal:

Grade 8–10—Much broader in scope than the publisher's 2000 single-volume work of the same title, this resource divides recorded history into six unequal chronological slices. The focus is global, though inconsistently so; for instance, "Greek War of Independence" is longer than "Vietnam War," and George Washington gets considerably fewer column inches than Josef Stalin. The first six volumes open with a chronology and an overview essay that considers its period in light of six universal themes, such as "technological progress" and "warfare." The more than three hundred articles that follow range in length from approximately half of a two-column page to two or three pages, with larger topics subdivided to aid digestibility. Most articles end with a reading list and, where appropriate, cross-references—though only to entries within the same volume. Each volume also includes a fair number of murky black-and-white photos or period illustrations, a section of color maps, and an individual index. The last book contains the full texts of 110 primary-source documents, plus a "master" index that includes neither those documents nor, aside from the maps, any illustration entries. Though current enough to include the U.S. death toll in Iraq as of April 2008—in an article clumsily titled "Gulf War, Second (Iraq War)"—this set's arbitrary organization, unsystematic cross-referencing, and incomplete indexing mean that it is no substitute for the excellent Berkshire Encyclopedia of World History (Berkshire Pub., 2005) or even Facts On File's own online databases.—John Peters, New York Public Library
