From the Publisher
"This text provides not only descriptions/explanations of policy and formulation but also extensive references to other materials and sources the student will find enlightening and helpful. The language is clear and specific, written at the proper level for the college student . . . it is an excellent text for the subject. . . . Given the quality of the Fourth edition, I have no doubt that the new edition will be very well-received."
