On the plus side, this compendium illustrates a great number of awards not seen elsewhere, even in specialist self-published works. Most notably, African and Asian subjects have exposure lacking in other accounts.
In any case, the lack of other recent resources of this scope commends these volumes to serious students. Amazon's price was far lower than elsewhere.
