Rosneck, University of Wisconsin--Madison, Choice, June 2009 'The editors are to be congratulated for once again bringing together such a distinguished group of scholars and such a wide range of material. There simply is no other single volume that offers such a panoramic view of the field or such a diverse range of contributors...
