Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The book’s special quality is that Todd Clear balances passion and humaneness with scholarship and an appropriate appreciation for complexity. What emerges is a rare prize of a work, which avoids the pitfalls of shallow ideology and the dryness of ‘mere’ scholarship.” — Francis T. Cullen, University of Cincinnati
