"...it is obvious that the approach is broad ranging. But the issues discussed are related and relevant. The articles are descriptive and fact filled providing useful context as well as specific information...Under graduates will find it very helpful in grasping the complexities of the issues involved while scholars and professionals in the field will value the facts and solid background it offers. Academic libraries supporting curriculums as diverse as allied health and public administration will want to give it consideration."
