In its 400 pages, this book probably covers as much as is reasonable to expect.It will find its place among more extensive treatises as well as less scholarly entries. Throughout, the authors remain committed to their credo of "avoiding the tendency to present attractive hypotheses or assumptions as proven facts." In every respect, this second edition is a refreshing contribution.
