Reviews

"Blends both quantitative and qualitative data in an attempt to make more sensitive and refined interpretations.... Lewis has a knack for presenting fairly complicated quantitative findings in a clear manner without too much oversimplification, which is difficult to achieve."

-- Steven G. Anderson, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
