This reference provides a detailed listing of eponyms in the social sciences, along with entries for some toponyms. The work includes terms from a broad range of social sciences, including anthropology, economics, education, history, political science, religious studies, and sociology. The entries are arranged alphabetically. Each begins with a brief definition of the term, followed by a discussion of the terM's history and significance. The entry then provides biographical information for the person from whose name the entry was derived. A brief bibliography concludes each entry, and the dictionary closes with lists of entries arranged by category and a selected bibliography of works on eponyms.
