Editorial Reviews


"Offers the opportunity to expand historians' comprehension of the complex flow of ideas in a given time and place, even when those ideas may have been considered too dangerous or indecorous to be heard." -- "The Historian"


A wonderful book. Lori Ginzberg reconstructs the world of her protagonist petitioners with exceptional skill, imagination, and empathy. Microhistory at its best.--Charles W. McCurdy, University of Virginia
