Reviews[edit | edit source]
- Westcott, Peter (1966). "Britannica on the Shelves," The Age, 28 May 1966, p. 25. (Review of the 1965 edition of Encyclopaedia Britannica)
- Einbinder's book "showed beyond argument that the Britannica was not a completely impartial and absolutely infallible work of general reference; that 666 articles in the 1963 edition were reprinted from editions dating back to 1875 in some cases; that American influence on its editorial policy had become dominant."
