Review quote

'a first-rate book ... This scholarly book is excellent in drawing out the basic facts, and giving a wholly convincing interpretation. The style is clear, compassionate and compelling. The introduction directly sets out the aim; the appendices are valuable. There has long been a need for a book like Professor Bradley's. He has fulfilled it admirably.' Michael Northey, Kent College, Canterbury, JACT Review
