    "The fact that certain sections of this Handbuch will inevitably speak more to one level of expertise than another in no way detracts from its worth as a repository of excellent scholarship and helpfully collated information. It is a much-needed contribution and will serve as a facilitator of future work on Hermann Broch for years to come."
