    This is a well crafted study of a fascinating topic The text starts off a bit dry, gets a bit long winded in chapter 4, but does well by the end to present an impressively broad assessment of an essential living historical text I doubt this thorough and informed a perspective would come from any other author, even though I found the text somewhat less than engaging at times Who knows it was assigned for class Maybe I m just jaded from that.
