Grade 6-10-Lively and accessible, these books present their subjects in the context of their times, clearly explaining political, economic, social, and cultural issues so that even readers with little background knowledge will be able to grasp each man's importance. The accounts show readers why Morgan and Rockefeller-titans in their fields-had supporters and detractors. The explanations of business and finance are understandable without slighting the complexities of the issues at hand. Students will come away from these books with an understanding of these men and the mark they made on a growing nation. The black-and-white reproductions, mainly of individuals, are of average quality.
