Reviews

In its capaciousness, variety, common sense, and vivacity, Tradition in Transition is one of the greatest celebratory volumes in the history of the genre as well as a a major contribution to the whole of eighteenth-century studies ... masterful volume ... thoughtfully organized ... this volume sets a new standard for scholarly honesty, enthusiasm, acumen, and adventure. A Baedeker to a bafflingly dispersed period, it will never disappoint, will always

direct, and will perpetually delight.
