About this title

Synopsis:

Book by D.N. DeLuna

Review:

All students of political discourse, and the problems of addressing its history, have, since at least 1957, been obliged to engage with the expanding and evolving oeuvre of John Pocock. These essays brilliantly articulate and debate the terms of that engagement. They do so critically, with a refreshing lack of deferential reverence, but with great respect and affection. Essential reading. --J.C. Davis, University of East Anglia --book jacket

For the last half century, J.G.A. Pocock has done more than anyone else to define the political 'languages' of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Britain. This welcome volume takes a close and often sharply critical look at that vast enterprise, reminding us why Pocock's work remains such a vital force in the study of early modernity. --Richard Helgerson, UC Santa Barbara --book jacket

Whether they nod in agreement or groan in exasperation, Pocock's numerous admirers will find much to interest them in this collection. --Peter Burke --Common Knowledge
