'This stimulating and original book is certain to produce strong reactions.' - Phoenix

'This is a very impressive work. Presentation is excellent. Woodman writes with great precision and incisiveness, as well as agreeable pugnacity....[T]his book is by a long way the best available treatment of this difficult topic.' - History of the Human Sciences
