Table of Contents

"[The Comparative Essays] all do a great job of integrating the world, of tying together strands from different part of the world and different disciplines. If you want students to see connections, as I do, these essays do it as well as I have ever seen. An EXCELLENT feature." "Another strength of this book is its authorship. It is true that one author can often coordinate a more unified theme to a textbook, but such unity is usually forced, because the author simply doesn't know enough about all the fields he/she is covering. The use of five experts, all working together at one university makes for a powerful cohesive text that takes account of the complexity of each area."
