Review

"The authors have managed to cover a great deal of often disparate information in a very readable and well-organized way. The authors clearly recognize that they are writing not to colleagues but to undergraduate students while also clearly recognizing students as intelligent, capable, and invested in learning." --Wendy Wilson, St Thomas More College, University of Saskatchewan

"Extensive, comprehensive, and relevant to recent phenomena of the Canadian family." --Don Swenson, Mount Royal University
