Abstract:

The production and distribution of the information press -- The writers, self-presentation, and subjectivity -- Reading together, book references and reading practices -- Popular science and public participation -- Agricultural reform and local innovation -- Bienfaisance, fellow-feeling, and the public good -- Communicating the revolution.

"In the letters to the editor published in French newspapers from 1770 to 1791, thousands of writers received and responded to prevailing ideas of their day. This book situates overlooked voices at the center of the Enlightenment, shedding light on the social and material contexts in which knowledge was produced"
