This brilliant analytical survey in three volumes has established itself as the standard reference book in English on josekis.

Although this work has now been superceded by Takao Shinji's Dictionary (K41-K42: The 21st Century Dictionary of Basic Joseki), it does not render Ishida's dictionary useless. One of the features of Ishida's work is the numerous references to professional games in which many of the josekis listed were used, a feature that does not exist in Takao's compilation.
