Editorial Reviews

"I'm going to use Starr's book...as a synthesizing work to recap much of the course. Starr links literary and nonliterary sources, many avenues of approach, science and contemporary contexts. Above all, Starr makes an argument, in a series of stages, that is worth the students'attention."--James M. Heath, Bucknell University
