A very thorough and ambitious (albeit uneven) synthesis drawing together an impressive breadth of secondary literature. It contains many excellent anecdotes and cases, but the feverish pace of the book leaves them floating behind rather unmemorably. Also, the tone can be needlessly hectoring at times, addressing the audience (which presumably is interested in the subject) as a hostile and indifferent body whose resistance to the book's arguments must be broken down.
