"The editor [of The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Sociology] has now miraculously condensed those 11 volumes into this one comparatively inexpensive paperback ... As an up-to-date cheap printed reference source this book stands more or less alone ... The entries are clear and comprehensible, there are some useful suggestions for further reading, the cross-referencing is good, and there is a simple straightforward index with no indentations. I am very happy to recommend this book to any student still interested in buying printed works." (Reference Reviews, 2012)
