Editorial Reviews

`a bravura display of scholarly expertise which deserves to be loudly praised and widely utilized ... To have mapped out such a long process of change and to have classified its products is a considerable intellectual achievement, which rests on the inspection of a far wider range of accountsthan those either printed or listed, as Dr Woolgar's footnotes make clear ... it is hard to think that this work as a whole could have been better done.'J.R. Maddicott, Exeter College, Oxford, EHR, Epr. '96
