Telling People What to Think : Early Eighteenth Century Periodicals from the Review to the Rambler
This collection of essays displays a number of different approaches to the most significant early eighteenth-century periodicals.

The periodical profoundly shaped the English reading public's ways of perceiving the social and political institutions of their own age.
