Review:

“One of the strengths of Copi has always been the number of exercises, and the addition of even more exercises is even better.”

-Robert Kimball, University of Louisville

 

 

 

 

“I think the examples are the major strong suit of the text. There are plenty of them, many are very entertaining, others are modern and poignant, still others are historically enlightening. Excellent job.”

-Norman Schultz, Metropolitan State College of Denver
