By lmj on January 15, 2010
Format: Hardcover
A scholarly work written in 1993. I must have seen the author interviewed about something and thought that sounded like an interesting book. It wasn't what I expected, but was still interesting. I read it in one day. I wonder how the statistics have changed in the past 17 years.
