Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is for you if you are doing research and want information as close to first hand as you can get. Not too slanted, tries to be informational, but therefore dry without human "opinion". Occasional nuggets that are usable as historic background for fiction, but more for non fictional dissertations in my opinion.
