What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“No one has covered this ground before, and Katherine East reveals an awful lot that is new, presenting her findings in an accessible and intelligent fashion. The scholarship is impeccable, and the writing is clarity itself. Scholars of John Toland and the reception of Cicero’s ideas in early modern Europe will be grateful for East’s labors.” (Richard Whatmore, Professor of Modern History, University of St Andrews, Scotland)
