[pic] | |The Encyclopedia Rizaliana is one of the more recent subject-specific encyclopedias in the English language. As the name suggests, it is published mainly for those who would like to know and learn more about the Philippines' foremost patriot, Dr. Jose Protasio Rizal: his life, his various works, and his past and continuing influences. It is, however, also sold in other countries as well, where Rizal had been and where he is highly esteemed. The maiden one-volume edition (2008) of the encyclopedia has about 700 articles, many of them of the short-entry variety (100 words or less) but some running to considerable length (the "comics by and about Rizal" article is over 300 words long with illustrations). The work's coverage of Philippine and World geography and history may be considered too short and pales in comparison to the works of Ambeth Ocampo. Written by nine contributors, the Rizaliana includes over 900 index entries, 150 cross-references, tables, maps, and black-and-white line art and color images. The contributors feel that they need not sign their specific contributions, and the references were incorporated within the articles.
