Review:

"Now in its fifth edition, the book remains the guide in the field, with extensive updating, expansion, revision of text content...Librarians and researchers will still find this book, with its high standard and fine tradition, to be an indispensable, up-to-date guide to information patterns and sources in the humanities. Highly recommended for all academic libraries."-Reference & User Services Quarterly

"Review of previous edition: For a very up-to-date overview The Humanities is highly recommended for public and academic libraries."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"Review of previous edition: Detailed and comprehensive, this volume is a welcome addition to any personal or institutional humanities collection."-Public Library Quarterly

"Review of previous edition: Remains as fundamental a source as Sheehy's Guide to Reference Books (Current Reference Books, September 1992) has been under its various editors."-Wilson Library Bulletin

"Review of previous edition: New emphases on the influence of women and multiculturalism and on the impact of electronic information make this guide even more valuable...Annotations are thorough and informative...Recommended for all libraries."-Choice
