Schultz's comments when he announced his (and Charlie Brown's) retirement. The Index provides extensive cross-referencing and comprehensive entries. The perfect complement to the five-year index you get in each volume.

Choice Review

CQ has indexed comprehensively all 28 volumes of the "Historic Documents" series, 1972-99. Researchers who wish to locate documents on the Watergate scandal, for example, will find seven major headings under "Watergate." Under "Watergate Scandal," researchers will find Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield's congressional broadcast on February 1, 1974 in which he decries the encroachment of the executive branch on the powers of government; the same heading, subhead "climate at the White House, 1973," cites a Nixon press conference at Sam Clemente, CA, August 22, 1973, in which Nixon accepts total blame for the "climate at the White House"; and "Watergate Break-in," subhead "background of White House tapes, 1974," cites transcripts of the most controversial Nixon tapes recorded on March 21, 1973, which Nixon released to the House Judiciary Committee on April 30, 1974. Supreme Court cases (e.g., Roe v. Wade) are listed by case name. An acronym list appears at the beginning of the book. Volume numbers are helpfully printed in boldface. This compact index will prove very valuable to students and researchers. R. T. Ivey; University of Memphis
