“Revising a classic is not to be undertaken lightly. The risks are great, as is the labour. The original authors and their new co-author, Hitomi Masuhara, are to be congratulated on their achievement. I recommend this new edition highly as a unique contribution to the field and urge you to buy a copy.”  (Folio, 1 September 2014)
