    'Unlike many such compendia ... this collection is remarkably coherent, focused and cumulative ... there is a remarkable unity of purpose and theoretical orientation.  Owing to careful editing, and careful organization of the seminar series, this is far superior to most collections of essays by diverse authors.' - Area
