Review:

Thank you to the following reviewers:

 

Darek Niklas Rhode Island College
David Ford University of Central Oklahoma
Paul Gray Boston College
Christopher Hunter

Grinnell College

 

“I particularly like the ideas of splitting chapters up, to permit easier creation of reading assignments; of including adding group process approaches; of eliminating some of the less-used theories (e.g., Dahrendorf); and of retaining the style of writing.

-Christopher Hunter, Grinnell College

 

“I think the prospectus covers anything I could think of. Another thing I like is the proposal to separate the material into more digestible chunks.’  Anything that makes the material more accessible and aids in the student's understanding would be a plus.”

-David Ford of University of Central Oklahoma

 

“I like the text as is, but the revisions seem appropriate.”

-Paul Gray, Boston College
