ck Butts: A Kids Action Guide for a Tobacco-Free America

d A Century of Smoking and Tobacco.

From Booklist:

This exceptionally comprehensive, objective, and clearly written resource will be helpful to the general public, high-school and college students, and activists. The author previously wrote an antismoking book aimed at young people and several works on Native Americans, most recently the revised edition of Facts On File's Encyclopedia of Native American Religions.

After a preface and helpful eight-page "Guide to Selected Topics" (listing encyclopedia entries under headings such as "Children and Teens," "Health and Disease," and "Secondhand Smoke"), the bulk of the work is in dictionary form. Entries cover a wide range of smoking-related topics, including activism, advertising, tobacco companies, court cases, health issues, people, scientific research, and tobacco in U.S. and world history. Running heads provide quick access, cross-references lead to other articles, and a number of pertinent illustrations enhance understanding. References are listed after some articles.

The work encompasses the beginning of tobacco in the Americas, its role in Native American culture, the global spread and resulting health problems, and recent government settlements. The author's objectivity is shown in the treatment of organizations on both sides of the debate, in articles on the tobacco companies, and in the entry Tobacco documents, which deals with the copying and theft of industry documents. Although most entries are brief, some, such as Pipe smoking and Native Americans, are examined at greater length. The book is generally accurate, although in a few instances dates are incorrect. For example, Jean Nicot, who introduced tobacco to the French court, died in 1600, not in 1660 as stated here.

Appendixes include a series of brief contributed essays on topics such as safe cigarettes and warning labels; summaries and a bibliography of the Surgeon General's Reports; a "Secondhand Smoke Timeline"; a list of tobacco tax rates in the European Union; a summary of landmark cases related to smoking in the workplace; and a selected list of tobacco advertising agencies. A 10-page chronology begins in 1492 and concludes with the July 7, 1999, decision in Engle v. R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company et al. A five-page bibliography and list of Web sites will lead users further. The index is accurate.

This volume brings together much useful information and is recommended for high-school, public, and college libraries.
