CHOICE Review

Robbins's massive work, containing more than 27,000 entries, is the latest volume in Oxford's "Bibliography of British History" series. Arranged by a classification scheme, it covers all aspects of British life in the 20th century, ranging from the monarchy and Commonwealth to sports and eating habits. The references, which include both books and journals, are unannotated, but brief introductions open each chapter. There is only an author-title index, so access is primarily through the extensive table of contents. Peter Catterall's British History 1945-1987: An Annotated Bibliography (1991) cites many of the same monographs, although it covers a shorter time period, but it supplies brief annotations and a subject index. The comprehensiveness of its subject coverage and the longer time period reviewed are the Robbins volume's major strengths. It belongs in all academic libraries, but the hefty price tag may deter some. C. E. King SUNY at Stony Brook
