Book Description

Review 'The author does not let bias appear in this treatment of topics. In fact, I have no idea what the author's personal views, leanings are. I find the presentation objective and factual?The information is there for the student to study and react to on his/her own and form an assessment without the author urging a particular point of view. That's as much as I can ask and expect from any text that covers material where strong opinions are found on the subject.''I think the editing on the cases is very good. Not too hard and not too easy. There is enough challenge there to cause the students to bear down and read to understand what the cases are all about.''I think the author has done an amazing job of presenting the material in an informative - yet fair - manner. That is not always an easy task in this area!'
