Editorial Reviews

"Cohen's straightforward manner combined with his enthusiasm and accessible prose is enought to grab any reader's interest. For academics, Cohen presents many new points and perspectives, while for those with no prior knowledge of the subject, Cohen provides a gripping introduction." - The Kelvingrove Review
