. it is an extraordinarily useful compendium. I will turn to it again and again to find new points of connection and departure, and I am sure I won't be alone. Within our discipline, I hope we can all lay aside the perspectives of our narrow expertise long enough to simply thank Professor Margolin - thank him for his effort, and thank him for his generosity. The most exciting thing about these books is the further scholarship that they will engender. In that sense, they are truly the works of a lifelong teacher.
