The Macmillan Visual Desk ReferenceBook - 1993
This general reference compiles an impressive amount of information, presented not only through text but also through 4,000 illustrations, diagrams, charts, maps, and timelines. In a welcome departure from the topically-diffused alphabetical format of most similar references, the Macmillan is organized thematically and is divided into eight major groupings: the physical world, science and technology, communications, history, the arts, religion and philosophy, body and health, and sports. Indexed (at the front) by topic, person, and key word or phrase. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
