Review quote

'This is a book made of very diverse material ... To assemble all this in one book requires courage, and Professor James shows she has it. The result is rewarding. I have found it beyond my capabilities to give a decent account of the wealth of case studies reported in the 376 pages of the book. The search for unity is irresistibly tempting, but the richness of diversity makes fascinating reading.' Voluntas, November 1990show more
