Routledge Companion Encyclopedias
Routledge is developing a series of encyclopedic guides to all areas of the humanities and the social sciences - each volume continuing our tradition of excellence in reference publishing. Every title in this series is compiled by renowned experts in the field, international in its scope, and balanced in its coverage.
Organized thematically, the contents of each volume are structured to ensure easy access to detailed information, with extensive indexes and bibliographies. The articles are stimulating and wide-ranging - from theory to practice - and give a clear picture of each theme explored. The concepts presented are linked to provide a comprehensive overview of the subject in focus.
The Routledge Companion Encyclopedias are essential resources which will be read and referred to time after time by students, lecturers, researchers and professionals in the field, and beyond. They belong in every library - the superb reception of titles already in the series confirms this view:
`A must for all libraries in higher education, schools and larger public libraries.' - Library Review on An Encyclopaedia of Language
`Every public library as well as every university, college and school library should have a copy on its shelves.' - Times Higher Education Supplement on An Encyclopaedia of Philosophy
Subjects already published in this series are: Architecture, The World's Languages, The World's Religions, Philosophy, Education, The History of Modern Science, The History of Technology, The History and Philosophy of the Mathematical Sciences, Language, Literature and Criticism, Economic Thought, Government and Politics, and Musical Thought.
Forthcoming are: Painting and Sculpture, History of Linguistics, Historiography, Theology, Archaeology, and Geography.
