Designed to meet the research needs of high school students and up, this two-volume set presents information on the people, businesses, industries, events, movements, and trends that comprise the economic history of the U.S. A 33-page economic chronology, divided into ten eras spanning roughly 50,000 years from the last Ice Age to the present, provides a brief overview of the most important events and developments of that period. The eras correspond to ten essays which draw together the information found under several headings within the body of the encyclopedia, thus providing necessary historical context. About half of the 1,003 alphabetically arrnaged articles are concise explanations of historical and geographic terms, and the rest comprise overviews, issues, biographies, historical events, and state economic, company and industry histories. Contains a timeline and about 200 b&w photographs, maps and charts. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
