"This source consists of a unique array of 1,003 distinctive entries, somewhat confusing in their sheer variety, alphabetically arranged and of various lengths. Half are brief economic terms and historical and geographical definitions, and the other half are era overviews, issues, biographies, state economic histories, historical events, and company and industry profiles with limited bibliographies. Ranging from laissez faire, the Boston Tea Party, the Cumberland Gap, the Santa Fe Trail to slavery, the utilities industry, and Rosie the Riveter, the topics covered were selected for inclusion by an advisory board of high school teachers and college and university professors. The two-volume reference commences with a 33-page economic chronology spanning 50,000 years and divided into ten historical eras with corresponding essays."*
