From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9-These series entries feature an attractive layout, readable typeface, plenty of white space, and informative sidebars and captions for the well-chosen, well-reproduced black-and-white archival photographs and prints. Young's prose is crisp, to-the-point, and insightful; he makes use of appropriate quotes, although they are not documented. The presentation of "both sides" of the events under discussion provides young readers with an opportunity to make their own judgments and/or decisions. Students may also be encouraged by these titles to read Jane C. Miner's Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Watts, 1984; o.p.) and Slavery (Greenhaven, 1992).
