Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The strength of this manuscript is the writing, which is excellent. The manuscript is interesting to read from start to finish, even by one who is familiar with the material. The many case studies, news reports, and stories (e.g., of the author's grandparents) make the book particularly appealing. I know that students will read their assignments. The examples are up-to-date, as is the literature cited."
