Overview

This volume is the first attempt in a generation to map the social and behavioral sciences on a grand scale.

International Encyclopedia of Social & Behavioral Sciences comprises 4,000 articles and includes 90,000 bibliographic references as well as comprehensive name and subject indexes.
