“Engaging, easy to read, and the supplements help the education process. . . it is a perfect tool for teachers to send students off to read before lectures.

Also the different theoretical perspectives and debates.”         - Jaida Samudra, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay   “I don't think there is a better way to arrange the book. The text and material are teachable and easily translatable to lectures and presentations.”         - Steve Corbett, Johnson County Community College
