Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Dobie (French and comparative literature, Columbia U.) combines literary and historical analysis with new research to examine the colonial enterprises in the culture of the French Enlightenment. She notes that until the late 1760s the issues of colonization and slavery appeared very little in literature, philosophy, and in material and visual culture--and follows how that silence gradually broke and became the subject of discourse.
