'Clare has done a marvellous job as editor, bringing together a collection that is both diverse and cohesive, not an easy feat. The interdisciplinary approach works well as nothing in society exists in a vacuum. Therefore, I strongly recommend that instead of cherry-picking ‘the relevant chapter’ you read this collection cover to cover.'
English Journal of the English Association

'Cumulatively, the essays collected here demonstrate just how much connects the Republic with what followed, prompting us to see the familiar in a new light or to make new discoveries entirely. They also serve as a stark reminder that scholars who insist on imposing artificial (and often arbitrary) period divisions onto the
materials of the seventeenth century do so at their peril.'
