Students and scholars of a wide variety of social sciences will find it extremely valuable. Highly recommended for graduate and undergraduate libraries." (Library Journal, July 2008)
"...a vital four-volume handbook that delves into recent trends in the profession and its environment. The writing styles are clear and approachable by both the professional and layperson. This set is a must for any academic or professional social science collection. Although each volume stands on its own and may be purchased separately, the complete set is an asset for both students and practitioners." (American Reference Books Annual, June 2008)
