really liked it

I picked this up at the library yesterday afternoon and read it from cover-to-cover overnight. It's an excellent overview of the academic territory with surprisingly contemporary references - no offence meant to the author: it just looked like a drier, older book on the shelf! Hawthorn's obviously gone to considerable effort to rethink and rewrite sections each time the book is released. I read the fourth edition - I see that it's now out in a fifth one (2005). Wish that I'd read it before going to university - it even has a succinct summary of all the new fangled critical positions at the back. Recommended.
