Críticas:

Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers; general readers. (Choice, 1 October 2013) The Encyclopedia of Ancient History is truly a monumental achievement that supplants any and all predecessors. Make no mistake about it; this is an academic work written with an academic audience in mind, placing it outside the collections of most public libraries and high-school media centers. But for any college-level collection supporting ancient-history programs, this excellent set is a must-have. (Booklist, 22 March 2013) "The Encyclopedia of Ancient History is a welcome addition to our reference collection for Classics in Oxford. The online version is especially useful due to its searching and browsing capabilities, and I think the entire resource will benefit students of Ancient History and related subjects at all levels. As a librarian, I look forward to introducing our readers to The Encyclopedia of Ancient History and will include it in my list of essential reference works for new students in the future." - Charlotte Goodall, Oxford University Bodleian Library "Written by an international team of well-respected scholars, The Encyclopedia of Ancient History takes the inclusion of all Mediterranean cultures seriously and devotes full attention to often disregarded areas and topic of ancient history. It is heartening to see that the regions of Egypt and the Ancient Near East are given complete coverage as well as periods like the Late Bronze Age and late Antiquity." - Marc Van De Mieroop, Columbia University "A distinguished range of international experts has contributed to Wiley-Blackwell's expansive new Encyclopedia of Ancient History. The modern undergraduate now has access, in libraries and at computers, to a dictionary of antiquity written in a straightforward and relaxed style that avoids the obscurantist over-compression of some of its rivals." - Daniel Ogden, University of Exeter
