The Celtic World
The Celtic World is a detailed and comprehensive study of the Celts from the first evidence of them in the archaeological and historical record to the early post-Roman period. The strength of this volume lies in its breadth - it looks at archaeology, language, literature, towns, warfare, rural life, art, religion and myth, trade and industry, political organisations, society and technology. The Celtic World draws together material from all over pagan Celtic Europe and includes contributions from British, European and American scholars. Much of the material is new research which is previously unpublished.
The book addresses some important issues - Who were the ancient Celts? Can we speak of them as the first Europeans? In what form does the Celtic identity exist today and how does this relate to the ancient Celts?
For anyone interested in the Celts, and for students and academics alike, The Celtic World will be a valuable resource and a fascinating read.

The Celtic worldUser Review - Book Verdict
Green (Celtic Myths, Univ. of Texas Pr., 1994) brings together an impressive group of European, British, and American scholars to cover the spectrum of Celtic life. The weighty tome provides discussions on language, literature, archaeology, art, economics, religion, and daily life among these ancient people. Each chapter has its own list of references, which, unfortunately, are not compiled into a comprehensive bibliography. That each chapter has a different author is both a strength and a weakness of the work. It can be jarring to move from one writing style to another, but the variety of perspectives and opinions is fascinating. The index (not seen) will be essential to use this work effectively since some subjects receive attention in several chapters. Recommended for all academic libraries and public libraries with interest in this subject.--Pamela A. Grudzien, Central Michigan Univ., Mt. Pleasant
