Something of a mixed bag. The worst part about the book is the very poor quality of the reproduction used for the illustrations; many are very dark, and very difficult to read. Additionally, the font size used for the entries is very small and is not a particularly easy font on the eyes. Some of the entries are interesting and very good, while others are very brief and not all that informative. It could have used a number of maps, as well. I don't think I could honestly recommend this book; this, in spite of the fact that Wordsworth does publish a number of other good titles. ( )
