They are well organized, with clear delimitation into sections and sometimes subsections: important terms are eyecatching in boldface. . . . For those interested in tracking down a technical term, there is a detailed index. Good cross-referencing within articles show the hand of a skillful editor. The bibliography at the end of the book is ample without being overwhelming. All in all, the volume should serve as a welcome reference." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
