Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Platt (Hispanic American Genealogical Sourcebook, Gale, 1994) examines the development of Spanish surnames in Latin America and the Hispanic United States and shows their dispersion and commonality throughout the Americas. The bibliography of Hispanic family histories includes information from newspapers, magazines, historical compilations, and monographs listed by main entry and with a subject index. Useful appendixes include a surname index to Arturo Garca Carraff's Enciclopedia Herldica y Genealgica, an important work on Spanish surnames in Spain that includes some information on Latin American families. Platt's book is the first comprehensive work on Hispanic surnames and the most extensive bibliography of family histories to date. Her pathbreaking work is essential purchase for homes and libraries with an interest in Hispanic biography, culture, genealogy, and history.-Judith P. Reid, Library of Congress
A reference guide to the relatively unknown but prosperous European nation outlining the key figures and events of its past and present. The dictionary includes over 350 entries covering all aspects of Luxembourg history as well as significant aspects of its politics, society, economy, and culture. Barteau (former head of the American International School of Luxemberg) supplies an introductory overview of the country's geography, language, religion, government, and education. Contains maps, photographs, historical chronology, lists of rulers and prime ministers, and a comprehensive bibliography keyed by topic. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
