"Brewer has made a valiant and commendable effort to read widely in French historiography and historical theory. If all scholars--literary, historical, or otherwise--ranged as widely outside their own disciplines as Brewer, we would all be better off."
-Darrin M. McMahon, Florida State University, H-France Review
Daniel Brewer examines the cultural construction of the Enlightenment in France from the eighteenth century to the present day. This book presents a significant advance in the field of Enlightenment studies, in an important and timely reassessment of the heritage and continued relevance of Enlightenment ideals.
