Review quote

'This is an excellent book. The writers have managed the difficult task of making a rather dry and unexciting topic interesting and approachable... I think Peck and Coyle have found exactly the right tone for a book of this kind.' - Geoffrey Finch, Senior Lecturer in Humanities, Anglia Polytechnic University, UK
