Reviews

'…succinctly written and contains more detail than many books twice its length. In fact, the lucidity of the style, in combination with a clear structure, amkes very much for readability, something I personally would like to see a lot more academics bear in mind…and I do most heartilt recommend it.' - Ken Henshall University of Waikato
