Review quote

"Very useful."--A. Bonodeo, University of California, Santa Barbara"A fine collection, well translated. The notes will e very helpful to students, without seeming condescending. Although a small volume, the material is rich and shall indeed provide much for thought, debate and analytical reflection. It is 'artistic literature' to be sure. And commensurate with student budgets."--Paul S. Burdett, Jr., Montclair State Collegeshow more
