Reviews

"Encyclopedia of American Industries contains detailed, signed essays on virtually every industry in contemporary society. ... Highly recommended for all but the smallest libraries." -- American Reference Books Annual 1995

— ARBA

"Overall, this new edition of Encyclopedia of American Industries is well done and will continue to serve its primary purpose of providing general background on an industry. Content revision is substantial and reliable, and access to its contents is enhanced by the expansion of the volumes’ index. The loss of some graphic content is highly regrettable, but not enough of a drawback to negate the usefulness of this work." -- Journal of Business and Finance Librarianship (Winter 2002)
