Critique: How well does the author make the proposed/intended case? Describe how the overall argument is structured, along with its strengths and weaknesses. What levels of data and analysis are used? Does the author use his or her evidence responsibly? Are there inappropriate rhetorical devices or emotional appeals? Does the author give proper consideration to evidence that does not support the thesis?
Other Reviews: Summarize the evaluations of other notable reviewers for this book.
