Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The single best characteristic of this text is the clear writing style and the level of detail. The narrative makes sense and extraneous details are largely cut out. My students get very confused reading other texts where the narrative is over rich in detail but thin in analysis."

"Making difficult material clear is a real strength of this book."
