'This source collection will fill a major gap in the market. The coverage of a wider time span is one of the great strengths of the book. It forces the reader to think in terms of a longue durée that transcends the usual epochal barriers of medieval, early modern and late modern history.' – Riccardo Bavaj, University of St Andrews, UK
