This is the kind of ambitious historical book that I usually look at and maybe even check out of the library but don't actually read. But I'm reading it now, and it's fascinating--just the kind of survey I'd been hoping for, on a subject that I've picked up largely in piecemeal fashion. So of course it's come up due with no more renewals allowed. Off to negotiate with the librarian.
