Review quote

Summing Up: Recommended. A useful addition to general public, high school, and undergraduate college libraries." - Choice "[The] bibliographies, along with the excellent maps that open the volume and the many black-and-white photographs illustrating the text, make this well-written text an excellent addition to public and college libraries." - American Reference Books Annual
