Many of the entries on people, institutions and society have been revised to take in to account recent scholarship and developments. This edition also brings the bibliographical citations, which are a key feature of the book, completely up to date. Maintaining the easy to use A-Z format with full cross-referencing and subject index, this revised edition will take its place amongst the classic reference works of this country.
