Edited by Paul Heilker and Peter Vandenberg

"Anybody reading the collection will come away with fresh insights about how our field has assembled itself, where it has come from and where it now seems to be headed. I imagine that the book will be used in many graduate-level introductions to the field and also by individual readers, who will treat it as something midway between a helpful reference tool and a professional mandala."
---Kurt Spellmeyer, Rutgers University
