This weighty anthology contains four sections comprising 34 essays by 41 authors. It's not a book to read straight through, but one to sample and remember, returning often, as one does with important reference works. Most contributors are from the United States; an international perspective is added by seven authors from the United Kingdom and one each from Australia, Canada, Finland, and Italy. Many are well known as luminaries to those who work in related areas, but the nonspecialist will lament the lack of significant information about who they are and what they do; a few sentences about each contributor would surely have earned their space.
