Satterfield's writing style is clear, well structured, and fluid. His arguments on behalf of the Modern Library's importance and influence are convincing. The information and observations he presents on book advertising and retailing are fresh and sound. His chapter on the production and design of the series is very engaging.

What People are Saying About This
This is an excellent and valuable study of the Modern Library -- the most important American reprint series of significant works of literature and thought published in the twentieth century.... The work is solidly researched, intelligently conceived, and very well written in a style that deftly combines narrative with analysis.
