Reviews

"Enthusiastically recommended to all college and university libraries." -- Choice

"The Reader's Guide leads to many unique sources even for main entries it has in common with other encyclopedias; and as a bibliographic tool it is currently the most up-to-date of them all. It is unique for the expert guidance to selected texts it offers in a field that is bustling with secondary material. The price is reasonable given the impressive wealth of scholarship that is packed into its pages." -- Booklist/RBB

"Offering expert contributions from international scholars, this guide ably fulfills its aim of covering both important older works and recent publications." -- Library Journal
