?What a gem! Rarely does one encounter a title so interesting and informative in the form of a bibliography....The superb annotations for each entry are clearly the most noteworthy feature of this volume; most run about 500 words, but some are as long as 1,000. Even the shorter annotations provide a wealth of information and detail. An extensive, detailed index is also included. Very highly recommended, undergraduate through professional.??Choice
