Who remembers life before the Internet?

The New American Desk Encyclopedia was a twentieth century must-have. Mine sits between The American Heritage Dictionary and The Merriam-Webster Thesaurus on a shelf of dusty paperback reference books ~ all pleasantly battered from my school days.

In 2015, The New American Desk Encyclopedia still has a lot going for it. It covers a wide range of disciplines in entries that vary in length from a few sentences to half a page. In “X” ~ at 1 pages the shortest
