'Leifers influence and authority grew with the clear importance of the subject, and in many respects his writings over the years defined its international significance. He lived with his work in the fullest sense, combining a steady output of books, articles and reviews with lecturing and teaching of the highest order. The essays in this book provide many insights into both his academic achievement and his personal life.'
