That being said, I definitely recommend this book to the specialists in this field, but would advise against it for anyone not familiar with these theories from the start.
Also, Sarah Stroud and Christine Tappolet have edited this book so that each occurance of an unnamed person (used in examples) is referred to as "she". This odd trendy use is somewhat distracting, and if Stroud and Tappolet would find the use of "he" in its place equally distracting, a neutered form should have been used (i.e. "the agent", "they", etc.). To refer to a subject as "she" in one part of the essay and refer to another example subject as "the agent" in another section goes against the purpose of the word "agent", which is purposefully gender neutral (as well as species-neutral).
