From the Publisher"The book is impressive in many ways - in particular, in its formal coherence and its brilliant attention to language. Schmitt is a remarkable reader, capable not only of making connections (which is what gives the book some of its formal power) but of making the language he stops to read for us alive with possibilities that casual reading would certainly miss. He never lets any passage lie still, and frequently he will offer a careful reading and then return again to plumb newer depths...[a] wonderful book."
-George Levine, nbol-19.org
"...a beautifully written, elegantly conceived contribution to the study of nineteenth-century evolutionary theory’s cultural implications."
