I think this is the best value encyclopaedia on the market and for £30 put's the vastly inferior (and over-priced at £50) Whitaker's to shame. I am always amazed at how Trevor Montague manages to give each section a different feel from previous editions but on this occasion he has totally revamped the whole book to produce it in A4 size thus making it easier to open and to read. I must confess a bias here as I notice my suggestions for additions to his Crime and Punishment section have been actioned although I did understand why Donald Nielson was not included whilst he was still living - other living convicted murderers are now included though so a change of thought must have taken place. I have only had the book a week so have not managed more than a cursory glance and have only really concentrated on the geography section but I do find the layout very easy on the eye. Congratulations on yet another magnificent book.
