Booklist Review

Approximately 200,000 entries and 2,500 illustrations. A carbon copy of The American Heritage College Dictionary except that it contains no vulgarisms or offensive terms. The introduction has been written specifically for the high-school audience.--Quinn, Mary Ellen Copyright 2008 Booklist
