About this title


The three-volume "Encyclopedia of Historic Places, Revised Edition" identifies and provides fascinating background information on cities, towns, districts, territories, and nations around the world. With more than 9,000 A-to-Z entries and a full-color insert in each volume, this revised set is much more comprehensive and colorful than the previous edition. In addition to current place names, cities, and states, this encyclopedia also has a substantial listing of ancient and classical places that are no longer in existence. There have been many changes in the geography of the world over the past 25 years, including the fall of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the birth of the European Union, to name a few. All of these changes, and many more, have been updated in this new edition to make the information as current as possible. The revision also includes new entries from every region of the world, with an added emphasis on how industry and technology have changed the geography of the modern world. The entries include: The Alamo; Berlin; Congo; Dakar; Erie Canal; Fort Knox; Hawaii; Ionian Islands; Java; Kabul; London; Mecca; New Orleans; Omaha Beach; Paris; Rome; Salzburg; Tibet; Tokyo; Vicksburg; and Windhoek.

From Booklist:

The more than 9,000 alphabetically arranged entries for cities, towns, districts, territories, and nations from around the world that are included in this revision reflect changes that have occurred since the original volume (1984), such as the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Each volume begins with a list of alphabetical entries found within that volume. Entry headings generally reflect the most commonly used name, which is often the English or romanized place-name. Headings include variations of the place-name as well as the place’s location. Entries offer a history that varies in length from a few sentences (such as for Minchinhampton, in England, included because it has traces of prehistoric settlements and earthworks) to five pages (for United States of America). Entries are cross-referenced. Following the A–Z portion of the encyclopedia is a “Regional Bibliography” arranged by county and listing both books and Web sites. An index is found at the end of the third volume indicating pages where the place-name can be found but no volume numbers. A section of color plates is inserted in each volume. The introduction offers justification for producing the encyclopedia in print when similar information is easily accessible online: “Online sources require filtering for accuracy and relevance.” Still, although informative and useful, this encyclopedia is probably not a necessary resource for libraries with limited budgets. --Carol Sue Harless
