From the book reviews:"By supplying clear overviews of critical conversations from the diverse disciplines that participate in OR/MS, and by integrating lists of references to support additional exploration, the editors and their contributors provide an accessible gateway to the larger realm of scholarly work in this field. Recommended not only for institutions with OR/MS programs or practitioners but also for those with an interest in exploring the intersections of OR/MS with its many related fields."
