Stepan, Alfred : Columbia University
"At his best, Stepan widens our horizon of possibilities and challenges conventional wisdom. Stepan's boldness in tackling core assumptions and in assembling historical evidence from around the world serves to simulate a more thoughtful and informed debate. The most successful chapters are those in which the introduction of a range of historical examples generates a convincing and well-structured series of subtypes or pathways."
