Reviews

The tributes which Israel has received for Radical Enlightenment are thoroughly merited; this book will become a modern classic upon the subject. David J. Sturdy, Cultural and Social History 2004-2006 Deserves to be widely read because it is an example of ground-breaking vastly well-informed and thoroughly new history David Horspool, The Guardian The scholarship is breathtaking. Israel has read everything, absorbed every nuance, followed up every byway ... Five years from now, our views of the Enlightenment will have been enormously influenced by Israel. Peter Watson, New Statesman There is much to praise in Israel's majestic account of the Enlightenment and his detective work in placing Spinoza at the heart of it. A.C. Grayling, FT Weekend Magnificent and magisterial, Radical Enlightenment will undoubtedly be one of truly great historical works of the decade. John Adamson, Sunday Telegraph
