'Unlike any other collection of documents that I have come across, the Symcox and Sullivan text gives agency to the players and participants while offering a balanced and full examination of the people and events that changed the world forever.' -Jim Ross-Nazzal, Montgomery College, USA 'The scholarship is impeccable and worn lightly enough to encourage even the most recalcitrant undergraduate. The translations are fluid, easily intelligible while remaining faithful to the originals.' -Anthony Robin Dermer Pagden, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
