Review quote

"[An] impressive addition to ABC-CLIO's library of reference works ... a useful ready-reference handbook ... sturdily bound, well-designed, and nicely printed." - Journal of Folklore Research "The Celts: History, Life, and Culture is a major reference work, suitable for libraries that support graduate level or substantial undergraduate programs in Celtic studies. Those that could not afford the earlier five-volume set will certainly want this. Even those that do have the earlier and more complete publication may want to consider this as well for its updated entries and bibliographies." - ARBA "The variety of topics relating to Celtic civilization is quite astounding... Recommended for academic and large public libraries-as well as other libraries where there is a need for Celtic resources-to fill the gap in this popular growing area of interest." - Booklist, Starred Review "This latest accessible and affordable addition to the body of reference works in Celtic studies presents the full range and impact of this civilization in Western Europe and worldwide ... The 800-plus entries present Celtic culture's unique features in both national and regional perspectives... Summing Up: Recommended." - Choice "Virtually all aspects of Celtic life are touched upon in these 800-plus entries on archaeology, art, history, music, mythology, and language and literature... While certainly readable for high school or college age students, the information is in-depth and is perhaps a better fit for more advanced scholars who have a familiarity with Celtic languages and geography; either way, a fascinating browse." - Library Journalshow more
