  • E. L. Lehmann

As a discipline matures and reaches a critical mass, it begins a process of taking stock. This process is served by three types of works, which will be discussed in this chapter: (1) books that may be intended primarily as reference or as text and that lay out the present state of the field; (2) encyclopedias that provide a comprehensive view of the totality of its aspects; and (3) histories that trace the development of the subject.
