"The volume is unique…it has the character of an international collaboration focused on concepts and issues. The authors go beyond slogans or accepted truisms to grapple with issues that are contested but benefit from being addressed from different viewpoints. I commend the volume to a wide range of readers for its breadth of vision and success in moving the field forward."
