Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Intended to provide scholars and students with a single-volume reference to the history and terminology of aesthetic concepts and theory, this dictionary-style work includes signed articles, varying in length from a column to three or four pages, with individual bibliographies. References to ideas, as well as to publications, go through 1990. For instance, the effect of revolution in eastern Europe on the history of Marxist art theory is discussed. The cross references included are necessary as well as useful, for some terms are really subtopics while other are too broad to be treated adequately in a single essay. In addition, the copy editing is occasionally erratic, resulting in errors like missing dates. This book will serve its intended scholarly audience, but it has too little to offer more general readers who might also be interested in the subject matter.
- Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley P.L., Cal.

"If one is looking for a good single-volume reference work on the history and concepts of predominantly Western aesthetics, then this is the one to get." (CHOICE, 2009)

"The range is phenomenal, the erudition daunting and the index rigorous. It is an essential purchase for all but the most tough-minded of academic reference collections and it would grace the shelves of many a public or personal library." (Reference Reviews)

"It provides very handy encyclopedic coverage of all main contemporary issues and figures in contemporary aesthetics.... It really must be bought by libraries as a reference text..." (British Society of Aesthetics Newsletter)
