"This title has been reviewed jointly with Church and State in the Modern World: A Critical Assessment and Annotated Bibliography, by James E. Wood Jr. Products of a lifetime of scholarship, these substantial companion bibliographies bring together nearly 5,000 carefully annotated citations of English-language books that deal with church and state in world history in the ancient, medieval, and modern worlds. The subtitle for both volumes, A Critical Assessment and Annotated Bibliography, is accurate. Together they will likely stand as the definitive bibliographies of their genre….This comprehensive work appears at a most appropriate time for growing academic interest in the subject. Essential. Upper-level undergraduates and above."
"[A] valuable addition to academic collections in religion, history, area studies, politics and sociology."
