Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The book is disruptive and refreshing, giving readers the particular and occasionally peculiar reading of the subject by the editors whose expertise does not necessarily reflect the consensus of the field. […] There is much to learn from this ambitious, revealing collection. Summing up: Highly recommended.
I. Ken, Choice, Vol. 50, No. 10 (June 2013), pp. 50
