Every year the World Book Staff published a supplemental book to go with the encyclopedia set that shows the previous year in review. This book shows the year 1987 in review. Each Year Book contains an essay on the year in brief, several special reports on current events, a look back at the year 100 years ago, the focus year and all the areas affected with a quiz, World Book supplement containing rewritten articles and a World Book dictionary supplement.
Recommended for history buffs, those interested in how current events are viewed as they happened (with no later rewriting of history) and those interested in getting a feel for what a particular year was like.
