From Booklist:

One of the most attractive features of UXL Reference Library offerings is their balanced coverage. The authors take great pains to present even representation of the diverse facets and manifold views inherent in broad, overarching subjects. This current offering is no exception. All three volumes, Almanac, Biographies, and Primary Sources, offer researchers accessible and satisfying essays that effectively introduce students to industrialization and its impact on the U.S.

This evenhandedness can be seen in the Biographies volume. Subjects range from social workers to society divas and from industrialists to labor organizers and political activists. Articles average about 10 pages and include portraits, illustrations, and sidebars. The Almanac volume consists of 14 chapters, each thoroughly examining one aspect of industrialization, such as railroads or early factories. User-friendly features (research and activity ideas, ample glossaries and word boxes, references to Web sites and print resources) further enhance this product's usefulness.

The commitment to accessibility is most apparent in the Primary Sources volume, containing a type of material that is often the most difficult for students to comprehend. Historical, political, and social context is provided for each of the 18 primary documents, and definitions of archaic terms and colloquialisms appear next to the original text.

UXL published The Reference Library of the Industrial Revolution in 2003. That set concentrated on eighteenth-century developments in Great Britain and Western Europe and traced how their influence spread to the U.S. This current offering will complement the previous set and is highly recommended for all school and public collections that support middle- and high-school students.
