"Editor Dewald no doubt had plenty of help from associate editors and perhaps must share credit for the clarity of purpose and excellent execution of this reference project...The articles were written for a non-specialist audience in accessible, non-technical language; yet they do not condescend or over-simplify. Concise accounts of controversies and various interpretations of material from scholars with distinctive points of view enrich the presentations (we're spared the bland, neutral approach of a textbook)."
