4.7/5 (4 ratings)
This encyclopedia is written and endorsed by the key authorities in every branch of knowledge today. Over 120 leading experts have researched and prepared the information it contains. Every single entry has been checked and approved by the eminent Editorial Board which supervised its compilation and production from start to finish.

The result is, effectively, a one-volume library, a powerhouse of information of the highest quality and reliability, all of it reflecting the latest and most up-to-date state of its many fields. In over one and a half million words, our world–past, present and probable future ‒ is encompassed for this and future generations.

The illustrations ‒ selected by the contributing subject specialists ‒ are themselves a unique reference resource. Over 500 photographs, 250 diagrams and technical illustrations, and dozens of quick-reference tables are included. Virtually every country in the world is individually represented on over 150 maps ‒ this in addition to the full-colour atlas section that provides and overall view of the world.

Never before has so much scholarship been presented in such an accessible form. The Longman Encyclopedia represents the definitive new authority in reference.
