The 1990s Decade in Photos

The Rise of Technology

Series: Amazing Decades in Photos

By Jim Corrigan

The 1990's economic prosperity and technological advancement are counterbalanced by a sharp rise in terrorism. Following a military and diplomatic triumph in the first Persian Gulf War, Americans focus largely on domestic issues. Despite enhanced communications via the Internet, the world is slow to react to growing humanitarian crises in Africa and the Balkans. In the music world, grunge and hip-hop dominate the scene. Through dynamic photos and interesting text, see how the 1990s were a time of prosperity and growth.

". . . each 64-page book in this outstanding series features an informed and informative accompanying text . . . strongly recommended for both school and community library collections."

Children's Bookwatch, January 2010

"The mainly color photographs and illustrations drive the easy-to-read narrative . . . simple sentence structure works well for older students needing hi-lo resources."

Library Media Connection, March/April 2010

"Characterizing a decade in one slim book involves making choices--Corrigan generally does quite well at selecting nineteen significant events or developments for each decade since 1900."

Children's Literature

"Attractive and readable, this series will be popular with browsers and beginning researchers."
