"A fascinating collection of 21 scholarly essays that collectively argue that globalization—'the movement of ideas across borders over time'—really began in the period between England's Restoration in 1660 and the European Revolutions of 1830."

"The Global Eighteenth Century is, first and foremost, an ambitious and important effort to point to the many ways in which postcolonial intellectual and methodological emphases are transforming our sense of the 'globe' in the eighteenth century. The essays are exemplary of questions that should be asked, and the kinds of answers that can be provided, by the best forms of literary-historical criticism and colonial discourse studies today."

"Should serve as a model for all those who study the past."

"Excellent collection."
