"This book fills a very needed niche The variety of readings in terms of their tone, their scope, and their interdisciplinary make this a very unique and innovative text. The reading selections are all highly appropriate to a larger study of both theories and practical application and, most importantly, they are interesting and engaging. The readings really inspire students to engage in in-depth, critical analysis. The groupings of readings within the chapters are much more thought-provoking than presenting the readings as separate units. The authors don't presume to inform the readers as to which viewpoint is "better" but instead presents a variety of readings encouraging students to truly analyze both the theorists as well as their own personal beliefs." - Lori Rosenthal, Emerson College"
