"The book is fresh, entertaining and finely presented."—Economist. September, 2000

Part of its fascination will reside in the discovery of all that its lessons, all that the new mentalities it recommends, might reach. In the end, to expand our sense of the interests that were global can only add to the force of the authors' thesis, and recommend their challenge to a wide audience."—Michael Cole, Univesity of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Bryn Mawr Review of Comparative Literature, Vol. 3, No. 1, Fall 2001
