Overview

"From the beginning of this book, the reader is aware of being in the presence of a seasoned and highly knowledgeable scholar and practitioner.... The writing is clear and graceful.... This work is distinctive, original in its organization, and pleasing to read."—James Jarrett, University of California, Berkeley

"This is the work of an extremely smart, careful, and widely read scholar; it is also well-written and imaginative."—Wendy Brown, University of California, Santa Cruz
