Contents: "The structure of this encyclopedic dictionary is designed to provide the information and background necessary to understand the institutions, people, decisions, trends, and movements that have defined American history. With this in mind, many narrow or specific entries have been treated under the broader headings of which they are a part. If an individual or event does not have an entry, that subject may be discussed in one of the many major articles contained in this encyclopedic dictionary. It, for example, a reader were to look for the details of a particular Civil War battle, he or she would find that that subject is discussed in the major article on the Civil War. This would be the case as well for some specific individuals, as well as for less significant events that contributed to a broader aspect of American history" --
Guidelines for using this encyclopedic dictionary, p. v.
