This skillfully edited book offers expert guidance on
one of the most challenging and important areas of
indexing specialization. Chapters cover the indexing
of scholarly books in a number of key fields, including
economics, public policy, philosophy, law, and music. The topic of foreign languages in scholarly indexing is given close attention, and John Bealle’s account of his experiences in indexing his own work will be welcomed by academic author-indexers. Tying the book together is Margie Towery’s insightful essay on what constitutes quality in scholarly indexing. This is essential reading for all indexers of scholarly books.
