Praise for the Encyclopedia:

A Pennsylvania School Librarians Association Best Reference Titles 2003

"Fits nicely in the gap between encyclopedias of Africa and encyclopedias of folklore, narrowing and sharpening the focus of each. There is no resource quite like this one. Highly recommended for academic and large public libraries."
Booklist/RBB

"Provides in-depth coverage…. Extensive cross-referencing and bibliographic references enhance the volume's usefulness…. An excellent introduction to African folklore as well as a convenient resource for leading researchers to further study, this is highly recommended for academic and large public libraries with folklore collections."
Library Journal

"An extremely useful resource…. This book provides easy access to information along with reliable resources…"
Pennsylvania School Librarians Association Best Reference Titles 2003

"At the cutting edge of current folklore research…. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and higher."
