From Booklist:

This edition of The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia features minor updates to the 2004 revision. The text begins with an introduction and an explanation of what is history. The content is arranged chronologically in 10 sections, from The Ancient World (40,000–500 BC) to The Modern World (1950–Present Day), and then thematically within each of the time periods. Each section starts with an At a Glance entry, offering a brief overview of the time period via a global map and boxed areas highlighting key events on the various continents. Succeeding entries appear on a single or double-page spread. All of the sections, except for The Modern World, conclude with entries on The Arts, Architecture, and Science and Technology. (The Modern World section concludes with an entry on the War on Terror.) A time line indicating the appropriate time period runs along the top of each page spread and will be helpful for students in tracking places and events. Many entries feature boxed areas highlighting key dates. This text offers a global perspective. Shoguns and Samurai; Venice; Aztecs and Incas; and The Khmer Empire are some of the subjects covered in the section on the Middle Ages. The visually appealing layout includes color images, such as photographs and maps, on every page and features annotations that offer detailed information. The updates in this edition include mention of the execution of Saddam Hussein and the killing of Osama Bin Laden as well as the inclusion of terrorist attacks occurring since the previous edition. The book concludes with an index, acknowledgments, and a “Ready Reference” section, which offers listings of various dynasties, rulers, and popes, followed by a chronological listing of major wars and a brief list of Internet links for further research. This updated edition would be useful as a homework support for school and public libraries, especially those that own the previous edition. In addition, its appealing and colorful layout and accessible information will lend it to casual browsing by students and adults. Grades 5-12. --Maren Ostergard
