    Reviews & endorsements

    "...there are in this volume a good number of essays that are outstandingly clear and informative, wisely constructed and well documented, with a fair balance of sources, arguments and conclusions. They are readable as well as academically sound, and achieve a happy medium between what is suitable for a monograph and what belongs in a short enycylopedia." -- Times Higher Educational Supplement
