Review by:
Victor H. Rosen

It is difficult to know whether the title of this volume is portentous or pretentious. Much depends upon the postscript to the study, which will be published as Volume 7 and promises to be the 'study director's' over-all view and synthesis of the entire series of contributions. The reviewer who has read only Volume 6 is at some disadvantage. It may be that he is raising certain questions that would prove superfluous if he had read Volumes 1 through 5.

Be that as it may, titling this work 'a study' is bound to arouse expectations that the various contributors had engaged in some prior interchange of ideas before writing their presentations. However, there is not much evidence of this, and the present volume is little more than a symposium of loosely connected, albeit scholarly, survey articles.
