About this title


A concise, general-subject encyclopedia with color and black-and-white illustrations, maps, and charts

From Library Journal:

The American Spectrum Encyclopedia is an attractive and authoritative quick-reference work intended chiefly for home use. The 17,000 brief entries, which average 14 per page (or 100 words each), are complemented by 3800 illustrations, most in color. In addition, a 48-page color atlas of the world is appended, along with a historical chronology, the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and lists of U.S. presidents, Supreme Court justices, national parks, etc. In most cases, the text is admirably up to date; for example, the article "Apartheid" concludes, "The 1990s have brought greater freedom to the nonwhite people and the hope of total dismantlement of the system." On the negative side, the encyclopedia (understandably) lacks depth; there are some questionable omissions (nothing on adoption, Nadine Gordimer, R.B. Kitaj, or Philip Larkin); cross-referencing is sometimes inadequate (e.g., the article "Uranus" lacks a reference to "Voyager Program"); and controversy about people tends to be avoided (e.g., Charles Dickens's liaison with Nelly Ternan). The American Spectrum Encyclopedia competes directly with the Cambridge Encyclopedia ( LJ 9/1/90) and the updated edition of the Random House Encyclopedia ( LJ 11/15/90), both single-volume tomes of comparable reference value. The largest and most respected such work, the New Columbia Encyclopedia ( LJ 7/75), is now quite dated, but a new edition is scheduled for 1993. Libraries would be wise to wait for that work instead of investing in the American Spectrum. -- Kenneth F. Kister, author of "Best Encyclopedias," Tampa, Fla.

Shipping Terms:

International orders are shipped via AIR and should arrive in 7 to 10 days after shipping. Over sized items (e.g. Sets containing 2 or more volumes, table size, 4to, folios) and high cost items are sometimes subject to additional shipping charges; we will contact you if such is the case.
Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. International shipments may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and can't predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
