"This is a distinguished and attractive work, scholarly and informative; well worth a place in any reference library." - Reference Reviews "The strength of the essays lies in the fullness of the treatment of events and the inclusion of personalities associated with the site." - Choice "Because of the amount of detail in the essays and their appended bibliographies, this set will well serve its stated audience of students, teachers, librarians, historians, and anyone interested in historic places." - Reference Books Bulletin "Sometimes. . .the detail is literally and properly overpowering. . . some of the essays are extraordinarily evocative of the places they describe. " - The Times Educational Supplement "An attractive, appealing reference that provides information on places that have been the site of important events in human history and that have been preserved for the benefit of future generations." - Reference & Research Book News "Historians, geographers, travellers, students, educators, and casual readers will find this a fascinating reference tool." - School Library Journal "They provide deeper profiles and better site-specific bibliographies than general encyclopedias. These books can both satisfy and stimulate curiosity about unknown, far-away places and peoples." - Rettig on Reference
