HardCover Binding. Year: 1975. ISBN: 0. Attempts to rise above the role of a dictionary. That is, instead of offering only an alphabetized listing of terminology, each term is presented as a building block of the entire subject. This is done by explaining each basic term first, then listing related terms, finally, any other subject that might cast light upon the subject is given as a reference.
