Library Journal Review

The New York Times continues its look back on the late 20th century in this third book in the series (preceded by The Times of the Eighties and Seventies), which contains -articles, editorials, reviews, and other material originally published in the pages of the era's newspaper of record. The articles are organized similarly to the daily newspaper, with sections for national, international, and New York news; business; science; life and style; sports; and arts and entertainment. Within each section, the articles are arranged chronologically, with certain historical themes emphasized, such as civil rights, the Vietnam conflict, and the space race. Organizing the material this way means that readers can experience the news as it unfolded in history. With only a brief introduction from editor Rockwell, the book is rather light on analysis-a wise choice, as it gives the reader the opportunity to appreciate the writing in its own context. VERDICT History and journalism buffs will enjoy thumbing through this well--assembled and edited collection.-Brett Rohlwing, Milwaukee P.L. (c) Copyright 2014.
