What good company we are in here on Darwin-L.  I posted a message a day or
two ago about a wonderful book called _Dictionary of Concepts in History_,
and to my surprise I discovered that the editor of this whole series of
dictionaries is one of our members, Raymond McInnis of Western Washington
University.  Many of the other titles in the series touch on the historical
sciences, so I list here all the ones I found in HOLLIS:

DICTIONARY OF CONCEPTS IN ARCHAEOLOGY

DICTIONARY OF CONCEPTS IN CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY
