Interpreting the United States booklists, prepared by Jennie M. Flexner and others, contains adult and children's booklists and supplements.
The original purpose of the list was to assist British libraries in selecting significant books to aid in the understanding the United States. The books were chosen for their portrayal of the history, institutions and foibles of American life.
