Historical Dictionaries of Peoples and Cultures
There is a lot to like about Scarecrow's various Historical Dictionaries series. -Booklist In writing about a -people+ or more broadly a -culture,+ it is necessary to show what unites its members, what divides them, where they have resided in the past and are located at present, and especially how they have managed to survive as a coherent group in a world of states. By concentrating on the persons, places and events that mark a people+s social relations with one another and preserve their culture, language, and religion, the Historical Dictionaries of Peoples and Cultures do just that. Obviously, these volumes do not include all -peoples+ by any means, but some of the most significant and largest are there, including ethnic and religious groupings. Each historical dictionary consists of a map, list of acronyms, chronology, introduction, bibliography and especially the core -dictionary,+ with hundreds of cross-referenced entries on persons, places, events, institutions, and related political, economic, social, and cultural aspects. As with the other series, these books are written by well-known specialists. And they should probably be consulted in conjunction with books on the countries where these peoples live in the series of Historical Dictionaries of Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.
