About the Series: Oxford's Very Short Introductions offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects--from Islam to Sociology, Politics to Classics, and Literary Theory to History.

Every Very Short Introduction gives a readable evolution of the subject in question, demonstrating how it has developed and influenced society. Whatever the area of study, whatever the topic that fascinates the reader, the series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable.

I have been a Quaker for many years and didn't know a lot of the things that were in this little book. I find myself reading to my wife from it and about to e-mail a passage to a friend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
