Über diesen Titel

From Library Journal:

Designed to provide extensive coverage of all aspects of Canadian Life, The Canadian Encyclopedia is the unpretentious answer to the long-outdated Encyclopedia Canadiana. In addition to the expected topics in arts and sciences, it features precis on selected literary works as well as articles on major periodicals; corporations and associations; sports teams and events; and cultural and religious groups, including the native peoples. While coverage is meant to be extensive, there are occasional omissions (Ku Klux Klan is entered, the Nazi Party of Canada is not). Some articles are dry and factual, most are well-written and interesting, and the odd one is simply breathtaking (Tom Thomson). Social inequities are not ignored. Occasionally, contributors dwell on personal interpretations of history, but generally, the articles impart a sense of ``liberal objectivity.'' Biographies are numerous. See-also references appear within articles as reduced upper-case; an index in volume 3 provides cross-references for non-entries. The use of italics is inconsistent. They appear alone (Christian Religious Communities) or as qualifiers (Judaism) or qualified (Judo). There are some spelling errors. The inclusion of reading lists is also inconsistent. There are 2500 contributors listed, with their affiliations, and most entries are signed. The work is well illustrated, and design and typography are excellent. A French edition is due in 1987, a new English edition in 1988. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries. Mary Hemmings, McGill Univ. Medical Lib., Montreal
