In my discipline there are typically two kinds of reviews. The first is sharply critical of the author’s conclusions, argumentative techniques, and overall style. The second usually involves a brief summary of the author’s points and then goes on to engage the project in a variety of ways: some critical, some conciliatory. I choose to adopt the latter form as it seems that Digby brings to the fore issues that should concern educators in Honors.
