Mathieu | 93 comments First, this book (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26...) is badly referenced.

Thomas Bartlett is only one of the four editors, along with David Dickson, Daire Keogh, Kevin Whelan.

Also, I think this book (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14...) is, in fact, the same one and maybe should be deleted.

Koenraad (koenraadkelemen) | 5081 comments Fixed and combined.
They are different editions with valid ISBN numbers.

Mathieu | 93 comments It's rather strange, because in the preface, the editors state that "when it became apparent to the editors that early publication was not going to be possible, the decision was taken to organize the collection in such a way that the volume would be both definitive and self-critical" (p. ix). Along with the fact that the bibliography goes up to 2002, I really doubt that an earlier publication date is possible.
