`[T]his volume is in every sense a massive contribution to
Nietzsche scholarship. Ken Gemes and John Richardson deserve
congratulations for lining up many good essays, thanks for their
clear and helpful introduction, and admiration for coming as close
to complete coverage of Nietzsche-related topics as any book could.
The essays offer original arguments while remaining accessible to
readers who are unfamiliar with the facets of Nietzsche scholarship
