"The editors correctly state that no other work provides the same level of detail and supporting material about the Nazi ghetto and concentration camp system. Five more volumes of this encyclopedia are scheduled, with the next to include 220 additional ghettos set up in states such as Slovakia, Hungary, Vichy France, and Romania. This user-friendly reference work belongs on every library bookshelf. ... Essential."
"[T]he author's careful, thoughtful treatment allows the reader a fuller appreciation of the level of craftsmanship and inspiration inherent in the best of Puccini's operas, leading to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the composer's genius. Dense and challenging in its detail and analysis, this work is an important addition to the growing corpus of Puccini studies. ... Highly recommended."
