“Given the nature of the topic, this set offers articles that would be useful across the curriculum. Summing Up: Recommended. Libraries supporting communication departments or communication research in other fields; lower-level undergraduates and above.” (CHOICE, March 2009)

“This encyclopaedia ... .Genuinely impresses and supersedes the opposition. It’s combination of wide coverage, sensible construction, international reach, subject objectivity, and hospitality to natural language searches makes it attractive to libraries where extensive use will take place.” (Reference Reviews, January 2009)

Other works … do not match this work’s depth of scholarship. Definitive, authoritative, and scholarly, it is highly recommended for academic libraries large and small. (Library Journal)
