TELLING PEOPLE WHAT TO THINK Early Eighteenth-Century Periodicals from The Review to The Rambler; Copyright; Contents; Introduction; Stating Facts Right About Defoe's Review; The Tatler: From Half-Sheet to Book; The Examiner Re-Examined; The Spectator's Generalizing Discourse; The Craftsman; The Life and Death of Common Sense; Literature and Commerce in Eighteenth-Century London: The Making of The Champion; The Rambler and the Eighteenth-Century Periodical Essay: A Dissenting View; Notes on Contributors
This collection of essays displays a number of different approaches to the most significant early eighteenth-century periodicals. The range is considerable: the critique of ideology and polemical strategy, the political history of the press, the rhetoric of the genre, and the material circumstances of periodical production all find a place. The periodical profoundly shaped the English reading public's ways of perceiving the social and political institutions of their own age.
