With the exception of a few changes to the preface, this work is a reprinting of the latest edition of Cambridge Biographical Dictionary, published in 1990 (LJ 1/91). Libraries with the Cambridge edition won't need Larousse's. Libraries without the Cambridge edition should consider LJ's "highly recommended for all libraries" endorsement, with which this reviewer concurs.-Stanley P. Hodge, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, Ind.
