Several solid existing encyclopedias overlap with portions of this contribution, including Michael Newton's The FBI Encyclopedia (CH, Apr'04, 41-4413); William Klingaman's Encyclopedia of the McCarthy Era (1996); Historical Encyclopedia of American Labor, ed. by Robert Weir and James Hanlan (CH, Oct'04, 42-0702); and Encyclopedia of the American Left, ed. by Mari Jo Buhle, Paul Buhle, and Dan Georgakas (2d ed., CH, Apr'99, 36-4255). While this effort seeks to cover far more ground than more specialized encyclopedias and promises, in its promotional material, "in-depth" and "the most detailed coverage of contemporary and historical issues relating to basic liberties guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution," its execution falls woefully short. Printed in large type separated by great amounts of white space, a formally three-volume, 1,376-page encyclopedia is the equivalent of perhaps 500 normal pages. A high percentage of the approximately 400 entries are devoted to individual Supreme Court cases, which are easily accessible in many other reference books. The articles, which seem to be aimed at none-too-bright junior high school students, are hopelessly short, superficial, and incomplete, and the article bibliographies are entirely inadequate. The encyclopedia includes illustrations, a few key historical documents, a superficial seven-page chronology, detailed indexes, and a 45-page noncategorized general bibliography. Only the most well-endowed libraries will want to toss away $300 for this effort. ^BSumming Up: Not recommended. R. J. Goldstein Oakland University

Public understanding of civil liberties is an important aspect of American society. In this well-indexed and cross-referenced A-to-Z work-containing nearly 700 entries of varying length, most ranging from one to two double-column pages-Schultz and Vile, political scientists from Hamline University and Middle Tennessee State University, respectively, provide information on the roots of civil liberties and address recent judicial decisions and legislative and executive actions affecting civil liberties. Users may locate information on a wide variety of civil liberty cases and find answers to questions concerning such controversial issues as the right to die. Governmental and nongovernmental individuals important to civil liberties are also included, ranging from former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft to American Civil Liberties Union founder Roger Baldwin and philosophers such as John Locke and John H. Ely. The useful topic finder allows readers to focus on specific topics, such as freedom of association or criminal procedures. Bottom Line This work is in many ways an update of ideas and analyses found in David Bradley and Shelley Fisher's The Encyclopedia of Civil Liberties in America (1997), also published by Sharpe. It serves as a useful source of initial reference on the subject in academic libraries.-Steven Puro, St. Louis Univ. (c) Copyright 2010.
