Excerpt from Open Country: A Comedy With a Sting The name of Thomas Welbore Percival was soundly respected in the city of London. It stood for a turnover of fifteen thousand pounds, and a private income of at least six thousand a year. It centred in the person of a rosy-gilled, full-waist coated gentleman of middle life - Mr. Percival was five-and-fifty and admitted it - to whom a joke was dear, and not less dear because its scope and measurements were accurately known. When Mr. Percival came into Lomax's Bank, had said 'morning, Wilkins - growing weather!' to the grey-whiskered cashier, and handed over his slip of green paper, a glance at the back was the only formula. Then came, how will you take it, Mr. Percival?' and Wilkins had his bundle of notes out and his finger Wet before he so much as looked at the figures. Mr. Percival's invariable reply was, How I can get it, my boy. Honestly if possible - ih these days.' Such old customs die hard.

...in his new novel, "Open Country," which has just been published, Mr. Hewlett tells far more fully and satisfyingly of the growth and development of Senhouse's character and theories, and how, in the course of his wanderings, he met with Sanchia Percival under circumstances delightfully characteristic of them both and of what happened thereafter. "Senhouse," he says, "had theories about everything in nature and society, and practiced more of them than you would have thought possible." He was, when we first meet him, "a confirmed wanderer, a sojourner in tents, as much artist, scribbler, desultory scholar as ever, but with a new taste, a taste for botany, which became later on the ruling passion of his life. He was more charming and ridiculous than ever, and mentally entirely naked and entirely unashamed." There are many other people in the story, some members of a highly respectable English family of the upper middle class, and other people of other classes, all, lightly as they are touched on, vivid and living personalities. Many things happen to Senhouse and Sanchia and the others, things both amusing and dramatic, but, through all the story, Senhouse's ideas of life and living, his brilliant and fascinating discussions of the seen and unseen, give to the book a pervading charm of poetry and of the out-of-doors that makes it altogether exceptional in modern literature. -The Book Buyer: A Monthly Review of American and Foreign Literature [1909]

The Progressives—those reformers responsible for the shape of many American institutions, from the Federal Reserve Board to the New School for Social Research—have always presented a mystery. What prompted middle-class citizens to support fundamental change in American life? Eric Rauchway shows that like most of us, the reformers took their inspiration from their own lives—from the challenges of forming a family. Following the lives and careers of Charles and Mary Beard, Wesley Clair and Lucy Sprague Mitchell, and Willard and Dorothy Straight, the book moves from the plains of the Midwest to the plains of Manchuria, from the trade-union halls of industrial Britain to the editorial offices of the New Republic in Manhattan. Rauchway argues that parenting was a kind of elitism that fulfilled itself when it undid itself, and this vision of familial responsibility underlay Progressive approaches to foreign policy, economics, social policy, and education.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 4 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
