Carl Waldman is a former archivist for the New York State Historical Association.From Booklist:
Although this claims to be a "fully updated" third edition of this basic work, a better description might be "expanded." This edition includes some 60 new entries, 43 of which are for tribes from California and the Northwest, among them the Bella Coola, the Puyallup, and the Washoe. The book is arranged alphabetically by tribe or group, and each entry covers the historical record--location, migrations, and wars--along with present-day tribal affairs and issues. Also included is information on tribal customs, housing, clothing, art, rituals, and food. The glossary of terms appears to be unchanged since the previous edition. The bibliography, however, has been updated with references related to the new tribal entries, among other additions. The book is well indexed, clearly presented, and easy to use, with 270 original color illustrations and maps that are both interesting and enlightening. The encyclopedia now covers 200 groups, but it still pales when compared to the four-volume Gale Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes (1999), which covers twice as many.
This volume is recommended for high-school, public library, and undergraduate collections, particularly those without the Gale work. Its added coverage will make it especially useful in libraries in California and the Pacific Northwest. Diana Shonrock
