Booknews
Baker (English, Rutgers U.) examines the 16th-century humanist movement in England, tracing the reception of Sir Thomas More's (1516) in relation to it. He argues that humanists of the English Renaissance were themselves reading More's , Erasmus's , and other works of Continental humanism in much more politically radical ways than scholars have generally recognized.
