Review:

"Selth visited most of the 36 research collections described in this unique guide and interviewed the staff. Such firsthand information gathering can be seen in his detailed presentations... Besides indicating holdings, the author provides for each collection: address, phone, person(s) in charge, hours and access; a history of the group/institution responsible for the collection and/or a history of the collection itself; a general description of the collection; publications; bibliographic access, and finally a section called "other comments." Each life-style section of the guide is preceded by a short introduction in which the life-style is defined and LC subject headings for finding material in a research library are discussed. The introduction to the guide presents both its scope and a good background on the study of alternative life-styles. This guide contains indexes to collections and institutions (listed alphabetically and geographically), periodicals, names, and subjects...Recommended."-CHOICE
