Review quote

Reviews of the Second Edition

"This is a comprehensive and creative collection of reviews of every imaginable aspect of the microbial world from ABC transport to zoonoses. The scope, detail and organization of this four-volume set is truly remarkable. The editor provides the reader with a limitless supply of reference material for teaching purposes, research, or historical perspective. This encyclopedia is an all-encompassing reference to meet the needs of the diverse number of disciplines dealing with microorganisms, including public health and agricultural and industrial microbiology, to name a few. To this end, the text is a huge success as the editor has provided a balanced compendium of topics in which no discipline is short-changed. The organization of this book is a strong feature. ........ The list of contributors is a veritable who's who in the field of microbiology, truly reflecting a world-wide consortium of authors. The complexity and array of subject matter covered in this book is (in the current vernacular) awesome! Once the secret is out, this text should find itself on the office shelves of all professional microbiologists and in the library of every academic microbiology department throughout the world."

Wm. Michael Dunner, Jr.m PhD, Case Western University in CHOICE


"As was noted in ARBA 94, entry 1636, about the 1st edition of the Encyclopedia of Microbiology, there "really is nothing else comparable in either coverage or currency on the market." Now with an updated 2nd edition, this "scholarly source of information on microorganisms" continues to stand as the major survey of the field for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. .... The 2nd edition appears to meet the basic criteria of an excellent encyclopedia in design, organization, usability and accuracy of data."
