MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for the first edition published by Marshall Cavendish 2003:

'The work is clearly grounded in history, theory and methodology. Whenever I read a book such as this one, I am always envious that I have not written it myself and I respect the authors who do.' - Marcie Parker, PhD (CFLE Healthcare Consultant) and R. Edward Bergmark, President and CEO in Managed Care, Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA, in Journal of Comparative Family Studies, Volume 36, 2 (Spring), 2005, p.347.
