A Guide Book of Peace Dollars is the 13th entry in Whitman's Bowers Series of numismatic references. It covers every date and mintmark of America's last 90% silver dollar, which began as a commemorative of peace after the tribulations of World War One. The book also studies the mysterious 1964-D Peace Dollar, as well as proofs, patterns, trial pieces, errors and misstrikes, countermarks, die varieties, and famous collections.

Burdette explores the origins and history of the Peace Dollar (including the American Numismatic Association's involvement), early designs and casts, the coin's production process, ways to collect, preservation, the market effect of hoards and meltings, and unusual examples. In addition to a coin-by-coin analysis that includes market values and certified population data, Burdette presents the biographies of key participants in the Peace Dollar's story, a Van Allen-Mallis cross-reference, a glossary, a bibliography, and a complete index. Full color and fully indexed.
