Bibliographic information


'Transatlantic Print Culture culminates a decade of vibrant work in periodical studies, and deepens our appreciation for the central role played by new forms of print culture in both Great Britain and the United States at the turn of the twentieth century... the most suggestive yet authoritative study to date.' - Kevin Dettmar, Professor of English, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, USA

'This excellent collection, addressing a broad range of periodicals between the dates of its title, is particularly well edited and logically classified. It makes fascinating reading not only for academic specialists in print culture (in particular magazines and periodicals), but also for any scholar interested in the various ways in which the cult of the new - from the new woman to the modern author to the new critic - pervaded twentieth-century print media at a burgeoning period.' - Routledge ABES June 2011
