'It is impossible in a short space to do justice to the wealth of scholarship and critical acumen which is displayed here. The overall effect of the volume is both to highlight Voltaire’s relevance to the modern world and to remind us of the vigour and intellectual rigour with which Voltaire studies continue to be pursued.'
