"Grenby's historical and textual research and analysis make The Anti-Jacobin Novel a valuable and necessary book. The study makes available to reasearchers a much more compreshensive body of material than has previously been identified, and the close readings of novels are acute and relevant. Grenby demonstrates an intimate knowledge of the culturepoitical, social, and literaryin which these texts were produced, and his exclusive and detailed attention to anti-Jacobin novels as a coherent body of work will help scholars of eighteenth-century fiction towards a clearer understanding of a period during which conservative social and political thought became hegemonic."
Offers insights into the society which produced and consumed anti-Jacobin novels.
From the Publisher"Grenby has performed a valuable service in investigating and summarizing a great deal of resourcefully discovered reading ... The Anti-Jacobin Novel is essential reading for students of fiction in the age of Revolution and for anyone concerned with the complex history of the British novel." Albion
