Product description

Review

"[The encyclopedia] strives to live up to its name with 844 contributors representing over 40 countries…, it covers both theoretical and applied aspects. At the same time , it is slated to reflect the changing nature of the discipline itself. Future plans for this resource to be continually updated to trace developing scholarship. By retaining all entries, the encyclopedia will become a record of the course of the discipline itself… Given its scope and overall coverage, and its projected ever-current status (as of the next edition), this is a groundbreaking project that will be the standard for the field-potentially for generations… Highly recommended." --CHOICE  The review also includes mention of the various search capabilities available on ScienceDirect.
