Revieed with Stewart Ross' The United Nations.
Gr. 7-12. Useful for reports, these two titles in the 20th Century Perspectives series provide detailed introductions to historical events and their continuing importance. The World War I book is not easy reading, with dense, sometimes dull, discussion of each of the countries involved: the ambitions, hopes, and fears that pulled them into battle. The United Nations book is more readable, and it's open about the strengths and weaknesses of the world body that can discuss plans for international peace but can do little to enforce them. Some of the best sections look in depth at the work of particular UN organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the HIV/AIDS program. The type is cramped, but the overall page design in both books is attractive, with maps, lots of news photos, and boxed quotes. There's one error in the UN book: Durban is a city, not "an African republic." Included in each book is a long, detailed glossary and brief bibliography; there are no source notes. Hazel Rochman
