Latest reviews

The BARS Review on Romantic Women Writers Reviewed. Read the full review here.


'This collection of essays provide new insights for those less familiar with the early courts and offer new interpretations of depositions, often dismissed as a legal construct, and in doing so their respective authors uncover female voices from the archives.'
Rhiannon Markless, C18th Girl on Women, Agency and the Law, 1300–1700. Read the full review here.


'Greenfield is to be congratulated for the ambitious scope of the volume and for drawing together scholars of a variety of different fields.'

'the book performs the important task of bringing together a number of interesting research projects, and will be of interest to researchers and teachers not only in the field of medical history, but also imperialism and law, colonial knowledge formation and trans-national connections.'
Imperial & Global Forum on Medicine and Colonialism. Read the full review here.


'The essays collected here all contribute to a positive redefinition of Rome: by unanchoring Rome from its past, they pave the way for a wider investigation of the city. Rome has been elevated from a model of “classicity” to a model of postmodernity for postmodern cities.'
Colloquy on Rome, Postmodern Narratives of a Cityscape. Read the full review here.

The BARS Review on Romantic Marginality. Read the full review here.


'by making all of the "Chronicles available", Pickering & Chatto allows scholars to both read and appreciate the stories individually and to consider the recurring characters, thematic similarities, and plot continuities that make them a series.'
Review 19 on The Selected Works of Margaret Oliphant, Part IV. Read the full review here.


'its value to future research is to be lauded providing, as it does, so much empirical and anecdotal evidence on the subject.'
Mad, bad and desperate - crime and insanity in Victorian England on Institutionalizing the Insane in Nineteenth-Century England. Read the full review here.


'provides a fascinating and important historical backdrop to current debates in Chinese mental health care.'
Ian Miller, Digesting the Medical Past on Psychiatry and Chinese History. The full review can be found here.



'These volumes are necessary: not merely to complete and correct the the late twentieth-century rehabilitation of this understandably pugnacious writer who valued her own "savage, stubborn will", but more importantly, to demonstrate all the things it is that her poems know.'
The Times Literary Supplement on The Collected Works on Ann Yearsley. Read the full review here.
