The editor [of The Blackwell Encyclopedia ofSociology] has now miraculously condensed those 11 volumes intothis one comparatively inexpensive paperback As anup-to-date cheap printed reference source this book stands more orless alone The entries are clear and comprehensible, thereare some useful suggestions for further reading, thecross-referencing is good, and there is a simple straightforwardindex with no indentations.
