The original edition of this encyclopedia was devoted to the Renaissance only; the addition of the Reformation, together with a more extensive focus on religion and popular culture, make this a substantially new product. The entries are written for the popular reader and will be accessible to high school students. Many of the entries are biographies, with the dates and career title of the figure noted beside the name. A few of the entries on large topics include suggestions for further reading and a general bibliography is supplied in the appendix. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
