A revised and updated edition of the encyclopedia originally published by B.P.C. Publishing in 1970. It is a comprehensive guide to all the world's major (and many of the minor) faiths, philosophies, legends, mythologies, and folklore, as well as literature, symbolism, superstition, and the supernatural, from the remote past to the present day. The depth of coverage varies from major articles of up to 10,000 words to concise, glossary-type entries in short paragraphs. Subjects of major interest include bibliographies of further reading. The mostly color illustrations, which appear on nearly every page, are crisp and varied. Volume 21 includes a detailed comprehensive index as well as a number of classified subject indexes. Targeted toward young adults, the fascinating (and fairly sophisticated) material will likely interest readers of all ages. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
