Are there any books which do describe this well? If not, maybe you
should write one. Academics can hardly be expected to put in forty
years like you did before they analyze things. So its up to people
like you to set them straight.

I am especially interested in this issue because there's a good chance
I'll be a professor of political science within the next two years.
