Summary: The Gulf War, dot-coms, impeachment, grunge, Y2K; the 1990's were a time of both optimism and conflict, hope and worry. The decade began with a seemingly victorious war, fell into recession, bounced back with a strong bull market, and ended in political bitterness and scandal. This set examines the iconic personalities and moments of this important decade. It covers events, movements, people, and trends in popular culture, literature, art, sports, science, technology, economics, and politics in both the United States and Canada. With articles about films, books, political leaders, events, fads, and technology, the encyclopedia serves as a source of information and insights. Volume 3 contains sixteen appendixes that provide additional information about selected aspects of the decade: five entertainment, two literature, two music, one sports, and two legislative appendixes, a glossary of new words and slang, and a detailed time line.
