Tucker, editor of several war encyclopedias for ABC-CLIO, lays out a comprehensive overview of the Spanish-American and Philippine-American wars, both of which changed the position of the United States in the world. The first two volumes contain over 600 signed A-to-Z entries that describe the most significant people, battles, events, and geographic locations from the United States and around the world, as well as more general cultural, social, and economic topics. Photographs and other images, such as maps and broadsides, accompany more than half of the entries. The third volume contains 153 primary-source documents from the period. BOTTOM LINE ABC-CLIO is known for high-quality encyclopedias, and this one does not disappoint. It will provide researchers in academic and large public libraries with the context needed for further research.-Ryan Johnson, Univ. of Mississippi, Oxford
