From the Publisher"...this work escapes the fate of so many single-subject edited volumes, remaining interesting and thought-provoking throughout. Each chapter has new ideas to provide the reader, and Little does an admirable job of editing a comprehensive volume with a minimum of repetition. ....It is an excellent scholarly discussion and a base from which further research can occur. ...this book is an indication that this fascinating topic is finally receiving the scholarly attention it deserves."
