Reviews

"The well-chosen additional materials in this new edition of Waverley will prove illuminating to readers of Scott in numerous ways. Contemporaneous reviews reveal a wide range of perspectives on this historical novel; selections by Defoe and Swift express conflicting attitudes toward the Union of 1707. In addition, sections on the Rebellion of 1745 and on the customs of the Highlanders make available relevant but otherwise not easily available texts that further enrich this edition both for scholars of the novel and for student readers."--Frank Palmeri "Walter Scott's Waverley is not an antique, but a revolutionary work that established the novel not just as an ideal type of history but as history itself: the psychology, the furnishings, the environment of the transition from militant to commercial society. Broadview's edition will help to reinstate the vivid creativeness of Scott in imagining a past and its people - not to speak of his anticipation of multi-media only a few years before the photograph."--Christopher Harvie, historian and member of the Scottish Parliament "Walter Scott's Waverley is not an antique, but a revolutionary work that established the novel not just as an ideal type of history but as history itself: the psychology, the furnishings, the environment of the transition from militant to commercial society.
