Perspectives: Scottish Studies of the long Eighteenth Century Series
|Series Editor: Andrew Hook |
The long eighteenth century in Scotland is increasingly recognized as a period of outstanding cultural achievement. In these years both the Scottish Enlightenment and Scottish Romanticism made lasting contributions to Western intellectual and cultural life. This series is designed to further our understanding of this crucial era in a range of ways: by reprinting less familiar but important works by writers in the period itself; by producing new editions of key out-of-print books by modern scholars; and by publishing new research and criticism by contemporary scholars.
A Fellow of both the British Academy and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Andrew Hook is Emeritus Bradley Professor of English Literature at the University of Glasgow. He has recently held visiting appointments at American universities including Princeton and Dartmouth. Among his many publications are a book of essays on the Scottish-American theme, From Goosecreek to Gandercleugh: Studies in Scottish-American Literary and Cultural History (1999), two books on F. Scott Fitzgerald and editions of works by Sir Walter Scott and Charlotte Bronte.
