Editorial Reviews


"Just as Eisenstein's giant book is a manse with many rooms, many spaces into which one may project oneself intellectually, so too this stimulating collection, in its varied and sundry parts, will serve as an excellent resource for a variety of pedagogical uses in literature and history seminars where its essays can be placed into dialog with others."-- Matthew D. Thrond (Dept. of History, University of Texas at Austin --H-German, H-Net Reviews, March 2009

It reads like an intellectual labor of love. Contributors and editors stay on task consistently and admirably. . . . There are treasures throughout. . . . --Winterthur Portfolio, Summer/Autumn 2009

Eisenstein's impact is undeniable and the editors of the present volume have gathered together twenty essays by scholars form a range of disciplines which collectively illustrate the kind of breadth and depth that has been achieved in this field in the last three decades. --Technology and Culture

"There is no question that Elizabeth Eisenstein deserves a book like this. The contributors all testify to her seminal influence on the field of book history, and their essays are exceptionally well crafted and intriguing."—Jonathan E. Rose, Drew University

"This collection of essays is one of the most important of its kind. The contributions are consistently of very high quality and exhibit a range that is wonderfully engaging. . . . 'Agent of Change' would make a terrific reader for a graduate seminar in book history."—Michael F. Suarez, SJ, Fordham University and Campion Hall, Oxford
