Considering the Enlightenment not as the outworn Other that postmodernism defines itself by opposing, but rather a surviving heritage that postmodernism itself must locate itself within, US scholars of history and literature explore such topics as Montesquieu in the Caribbean: the colonial Enlightenment between and ; the of Denis Diderot as an 18th-century time machine; and reproducing Utopia: Jeanne-Maria Leprince de Beaumont's . All but one of the 11 essays first appeared in volume 25 (summer 1999), some in earlier form. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
