Editorial Reviews

The Midwest Book Review - James A. Cox

A lively historical survey of how people discovered and developed new forms of expression bundled into the English language.

Choice

Writing in a lively, engaging, and sometimes humorous manner, Lerer (Stanford Univ.) fills this book with intricate reasoning about the profession of scholarship and thus provides a unique approach to the study of textual criticism over the ages... a dizzying but enjoyable romp over a road not taken before.
