Review quote

Packed with engaging information...Recommended. Library Journal This volume is by a well-known Egyptologist provides the interested reader/researcher with a wealth of information that can serve as a prelude to further research...Of tremendous value is the extensive set of bibliographies, well over one hundred pages of useful resources...Such a combination of resources in one modest volume will serve scholars and yet is not so overwhelming as to intimidate the more casual reader. American Reference Books Annual This dictionary...is quite accessible to the general public. Booklist
