Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I WILL CONTINUE TO ADOPT THE TEXT BECAUSE IT’S THE ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND.” Michael Moore

“Students seem to find the text useful for learning about each area. It isn’t just repetitious description of a topic. Instead, there are different points of view and ways to consider them.” Carolyn Ann Walker
