  • Chapter opening vignettes appear at the beginning of each chapter where they help illustrate the coming material and reinforce the concepts that have already been discussed.
  • Every chapter also concludes with a list of key terms andaset of discussion questions—useful for studying purposes and for assessing knowledge before moving on to the next chapter.
