"In order to determine if the publishers have succeeded in their stated aims and objectives in publishing the Landmark series, a study will be made, first, of the features of those books released between 1950-1956, inclusive; second, of their authorship; third, of evidences of their success. In adjudging the books, first, an analysis will be made to determine the extent of their coverage of the primary periods in American history. Second, consideration will be given to the form of presentation of the material by considering the books according to where each would fit into the conventional library classification system. Third, an analysis of the reading and interest levels of the books will be made to determine if they are considered by other authorities as suitable for elementary and junior high. Fourth, the format will be studied and evaluated according to the criteria set up by Miss Larrick and the claims of the publishers with some consideration of the illustrations and of such splendid features as indexes and bibliographies"--Introduction.
