Promotional Information

Charles Egan's presentation does a real service, providing the latest perspectives rather than a rehash of traditional, received accounts. His translations, which form the heart of this book, read smoothly and well. The introduction and the annotations are very well done and make this anthology one to be enjoyed, savored, and learned from. -- Beata Grant, Washington University
