The Encyclopedia is filled with fascinating and interesting entries ranging from New Jersey's earliest history to the present. For example-Did you know that New Jersey was once divided into two parts-East Jersey and West Jersey? That streptomycin was first isolated at Rutgers University?

These facts, and thousands more, can be found in the pages of the Encyclopedia of New Jersey. This volume will provide the answers to questions about New Jersey that you never even knew you had!

From the Inside Flap: Everything you've ever wanted to know about the Garden State can now be found in one place: the Encyclopedia of New Jersey. Nearly 3,000 original entries, along with 585 illustrations and 130 maps, catalog a wealth of information on the state from its earliest history to the present. Topics covered include architecture, arts and entertainment, biographies of famous New Jerseyans, business and industry, ethnic groups, geography, history, municipalities and counties, science and technology, sports and recreation, and much more.

Every New Jersey county and town has its own entry. Native Americans and ethnic groups are explored, as are religious, political, historical, and cultural organizations.

Comprehensive lists range from historic sites to hospitals, from nature centers to missile sites. You can find profiles of poets and painters, athletes and astronauts, governors and generals from. Historic triumphs like the Revolutionary War's Battle of Trenton and tragedies like the Hindenberg explosion are chronicled.

Encyclopedia articles examine the role of past and present-day commerce, from glassmaking and mining to pharmaceuticals and high-tech industries. Roads and rivers, tunnels and bridges¾if they get you from here to there, you'll find them in this volume. The book charts demographic shifts, voter turnout, and suburban sprawl. Landmark legal cases, such as Megan's Law and the Mount Laurel decisions, are also covered.

Readers will find entries on native plants and animals, water resources and soil types. And, of course, this is the place to find the state bird, insect, flag, flower, seal, and tree, just in case you need a refresher.

Overseen by an editorial board composed of distinguished experts in a variety of fields and edited by two leading specialists in New Jersey history, the Encyclopedia of New Jersey is an indispensable resource for both the scholar and the general reader. Anyone interested in the history, culture, and diverse life of New Jersey should own this book. It is the most definitive reference work ever published on the state.
