Thanks very much for the review. I appreciate it.
There seem to be more paperbacks appearing in Europe these days that 
might be
of interest and at the same time it is a time of severe library cutbacks 
here in
the states, so the chances are diminishing that even the best university 
will acquire these volumes. That means one must purchase or risk never 
seeing them.

Thanks again.
