Eighteenth-Century Moments is dedicated to outstanding, memorable works of scholarship, from early modern to enlightenment and Romantic literature, history, and culture. Emphasizing depth of research, quality of thought, and accessibility of style—rather than genre, ideology, or methodology—Eighteenth-Century Moments includes books of various kinds—not only critical, historical, and theoretical considerations from within the British, American, and global Anglophone contexts, but also collections of essays, biographies, book-histories, historiographies, single-author studies, and scholarly editions.
