Reviews

“Professor Schorr chronicles Dutch journalist Justus van Effen’s attempt to appeal to a broad spectrum of the reading public with “this most original undertaking. . . .Today’s reader will appreciate the editor’s choice in modernizing the spelling, which remains faithful to the original intent of Justus van Effen to pen a periodical journal which would be “à la portée de tout le monde.” – Bruce H. Mayer, John Franklin East Distinguished Professor of the Humanities, Lynchburg College, Virginia

“Dr. Schorr has not only facilitated the reader’s appreciation of these articles, he has more importantly given scholars documented venues to explore in their quest for unique historical, political, social, and literary perspectives to further their own research of comparable works from this century.” – Dr. Richard A. Lima, Associate Professor of French, Rollins College

“This careful critical edition of van Effen’s newspaper , Le Journal historique, politique, critique et gallant, will be a welcome addition to the existing scholarship on Justus van Effen, and will assist scholars with interests in journalism, media and cosmopolitanism, epistemology and objectivity, and literary and scientific vulgarization.” – Dr. Zahi Zalloua, Assistant Professor of French, Whitman College
