This is an EXCELLENT summary, albeit from a 1950s perspective, of the 
material, and a great place to start.  It would have been better, of 
course, with a more extensive bibliography & footnotes, but of all the 
general books on the topic, this is the best-researched; scholarly works 
tend to be more narrow in their time focus.
