This reference provides a detailed listing of eponyms in the social sciences, along with entries for some toponyms. The work includes terms from a broad range of social sciences, including anthropology, economics, education, history, political science, religious studies, and sociology. The entries are arranged alphabetically. Each begins with a brief definition of the term, followed by a discussion of the term's history and significance. The entry then provides biographical information for the person from whose name the entry was derived. A brief bibliography concludes each entry, and the dictionary closes with lists of entries arranged by category and a selected bibliography of works on eponyms.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In addition to being useful as both a topical and biographical dictionary, Trahair's compendium is fun to browse. It is difficult to resist entries such as "Bondomania," "Guillotine," Montezuma's Revenge," "Pussyfoot," and "to bone up on." For libraries serving the social sciences, Trahair is more focused than the many general eponym dictionaries. It is also more current than existing dictionaries. This treasure trove is an essential purchase for academic libraries and should also be considered for public library collections."-RUSQ
"This well-formatted and easy-to-read text will be helpful in ready-reference and is recommended for all public and academic libraries."-Choice
..."spans centuries of social science and touches important people, places, and events throughout the history of Western civilization. It is a useful purchase for academic libraries, especially those serving political science and upper-level sociology programs."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin
"The subtitle succinctly describes the nature of its almost 1,000 A-to-Z entries, while the title proper sets the dictionary's temporal boundaries. Makes a useful contribution to academic reference collections, even those not of Alexandrian or Bodleian scale and magnificence."-Wilson Library Bulletin
