MEDIA REVIEWS
"An easy-to-use starting point for research in the area... The topics included are well-chosen... It will serve well in college and public libraries." - Library Journal
"This Encyclopedia will be an invaluable aid to scholarly researchers, authors of historical fiction, and historical re-enactors. Coverage of "everyday," non-scientific technologies such as fishing, pottery, and transportation is a particular strength. No comparable encyclopedia exists. Highly recommended." - Choice
