The 2000s Decade in Photos

A New Millennium

Series: Amazing Decades in Photos

By Jim Corrigan

The 2000s—the first decade of the new millennium ushered in a new age of information including the Internet and electronic media. The early years are marked by economic slowdown, political divisiveness, and unprecedented terrorism. U.S.-led invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq achieve their initial goals, before devolving into bloody guerrilla conflicts. International competition for energy resources escalates dramatically. The U.S. was attacked in 2001 changing the face of New York City forever. In 2008, a time of change started when Barack Obama was elected president. Through dozens of photos and text see how the history of this decade unfolds.

Reviews

"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

"Reluctant readers will be drawn to these pictorial histories . . ."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2010

". . . 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

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

School Library Journal, April 2010
