Great Passages From Book Reviews

"Hopefully it will not be churlish to note that for the outrageous price that Routledge charges for this volume, they might at least have produced a quality volume. But this book seems to have had neither copy editor nor proofreader. It is full of annoying typos, especially in dates and names, and it has a barely-serviceable index. Moreover, many terms and concepts are not properly defined or explained."

From a review written by Joel Mokyr of Nationalism and Economic Development in Modern Europe (by Cark Mosk).
(The "outrageous price" is $140 for a 320-page book; Amazon has it for a mere $133--with free shipping!)
