3.0 out of 5 stars Great content -- unbelievably poor editing., December 1, 2009
This review is from: Belonging: A Culture of Place (Paperback)
I don't normally post reviews like this, but I felt I had to say that Routledge should be ashamed of the editorial job done with this publication. It was obviously rushed through production and, judging on the three to five typographical errors appearing on each page, was barely skimmed in the galley stage. And these are not simple spelling errors either. For example, on page 183, the text mentions "potential community that will simply be there when all that white and black folks know of one another is what they find in the media." It can be gathered from context that it should read "that will simply NOT be there..." This is a serious ommission, and similar ones pepper the entire book. Dr. hooks certainly deserves much more respect than this, as do her readers. I am also disappointed to say that this is not the first Routledge publication I could have made similar remarks about.
