Book Description

This 2-volume work includes approximately 1,200 entries in A-Z order, critically reviewing the literature on specific topics from abortion to world systems theory. In addition, nine major entries cover each of the major disciplines (political economy; management and business; human geography; politics; sociology; law; psychology; organizational behavior) and the history and development of the social sciences in a broader sense.


"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
