'It provides conceptual fluency with access to a plethora of current highly up-to-date research evidence. Moreover, there are limited numbers of texts that deal with these issues with such a degree of competence - this is clearly a major plus for this text.'
Kirsty Newsome, Lecturer, Strathclyde University
'Comprehensive, lucid and coherent, the authors succeed admirably; one of the most user-friendly texts I have everread.'
