Review quote

Certainly there are considerable gains in the Oxford Encyclopedia's charming presentation of contemporary scholarship as a united, mostly good-humoured and unremittingly reasonable activity. It would be a curmudgeonly reader indeed who was not impressed by the sheer achievement of this expansive version of the ancient world. TLS 17.09.10
