"Rarely have I been so profoundly impressed by a work of collective scholarship, virtually beyond criticism in every respect. Contributions and editing alike are of exceptional quality, and its value embraces lay readers (who will find it readable, often amusing), serious students (who will make progress), and denizens of ivory towers (who will wish they had written part or whole). A brilliant contribution to knowledge, destined to be the benchmark for future research and popularisation. Recommended without reservation to all academic libraries. To quote the greetings article: 'ahlan, 'ahlan!'" H.G.A. Hughes, Languages and Literature.
