"A unique work of reference and a companion to all fields of modern thought. More discursive than an ordinary dictionary, more compact than an encyclopaedia, more selective than either, it contains some 4,000 entries, written in clear language. Fields of study, movements, schools, theories, -isms and -ologies of every kind, concepts, technical terms, historical events and the places associated with them, people and organisations - all these are represented; and for those who want to pursue their enquiry further, there are numerous cross-references and carefully selected reading lists. The Fontana Dictionary of Modern Thought is indispensable as a reference book, irresistible for browsing - practically an education in itself."
Book in very good condition.
