"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Lionel Carley's Edvard Grieg in England gives us far more than a chronicle of the composer's relations with and visits to England. It also gives a meticulously researched picture of English musical life...Carley has already put us in his debt with his earlier Delius and Grieg studies in which his narrative skills and musical insights are never in doubt. He is a stylist and this shows throughout this absorbing and valuable study. BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE (Robert Layton)Outstanding...The illustrations are excellent, and the notes, bibliography and indexes are all that can be wished for. This book is superbly produced, as befits the author's treatment of his unique subject. MUSICAL OPINION (Robert Matthew-Walker)Handsomely researched. THE OLDIE (Richard Osborne)Dr Carley's highly enjoyable book is a compelling read, not only providing a revealing insight into the private and public life of the composer, but also a detailed account of concerts of the day between 1888 and 1906 in England. CLASSICAL MUSIC ON THE WEB (Christopher Fifield)Lionel Carley has written a fascinating book about a great composer in an interesting cultural situation at a dynamic period in British history. DANISH YEARBOOK OF MUSICOLOGYRecommended. CHOICE A unique statement about a composer for whose works the British retain an affection as well as an admiration. The publishers have done justice to a text which merits a place in the libraries of all musical institutions. The author...is to be congratulated. ANGLO-NORSE REVIEWMost good books are about more than they say. This is one of them...Eminently readable, jargon-free and packed with...fascinating information. PIANO
