Recenzii

'I think students could do with reading a book like this which covers the main ground quickly and simply. It would also do as a 'refresher' book...many books of this kind can be returned to afterwards for a 'remind read.' - Martin Coyle, Chair of English Literature, Cardiff University, UK
