Book Description Indiana University Press, Bloomington, Indiana, 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: None. THIS BOOK IS NEW AND NEVER USED, however, it had a little rough treatment in shipment and about the first dozen or so pages are slightly creased at the edge. This is a minor flaw that will not affect use of the book in any way. No other apparent flaws. Nice copy!. Bookseller Inventory # 0003075
