Review

We are open to reviews of both newly published and older, neglected works. The reviews that interest us most are stimulating and thought-provoking in themselves, showing where engagement with the book or books discussed may lead. We will consider both brief, one or two paragraph reviews, and longer, more essay-like articles. For forthcoming or recent books that may still be under promotion by authors or publishers, reviews (unless strongly negative) should be excerptible for such use. We welcome reviews of other cultural developments: music, dance, art, etc.
