Although this book is full of diverse voices and styles of writing, it is a tightly focused collection with a consistent point of view. Each of the 21 chapters contributes to the development of the overall argument, and each chapter also has its own story to tell. These stories are variously academic and personal, powerful and unassuming, moving and disturbing, sad and joyful. However, all contributions are informative and compelling. No reader will put down this book unchanged.
