Book News Annotation:

This general reference compiles an impressive amount of information, presented not only through text but also through 4,000 illustrations, diagrams, charts, maps, and timelines. In a welcome departure from the topically-diffused alphabetical format of most similar references, the Macmillan is organized thematically and is divided into eight major groupings: the physical world, science and technology, communications, history, the arts, religion and philosophy, body and health, and sports. Indexed (at the front) by topic, person, and key word or phrase.
