Jessica Richard, Review of English Studies Belcher's account radically reframes Johnson's thought while also offering a new model


Robert Fraser, LUCAS Belcher's strongest suit stems from her careful examination of relevant texts. Nobody before her has examined the Lobo translation in such detail. As a result she is able to demonstrate what few have suspected


C.S. Vilmar, CHOICE For any collection supporting teaching or research on Johnson, 18th-century culture, the history of colonialism, or posttcolonial theory, this book is required reading.
