"This book merits our attention..." Journal of English and Germanic Philology
"...the great merit of this book is its capacity to move into open academic discussion the fact of the strength of the anti-Catholic bias and the means of creating and sustaining that bias in Stuart and Hanoverian England." Martha Oberle, Seventeenth-Century News
"Tumbleson's provocative, groundbreaking book examines the multiple uses to which anti-Catholicism was put in different periods by different factions, by major authors (Middleton, Milton, Marvell, Pope, Swift, Defoe, Fielding), and by a host of now-forgotten pamphleteers. This is an extremely important book, often brilliant and always learned, on an important and neglected subject." Choice
"...Tumbleson deserves praise for examining lesser-known and long-ignored works of such canonical authors as Milton and Andrew Marvell, revealing aspects of the two writers that have been obscured by a post-Enlightenment literary and political culture determined to obscure its sectarian origins...Tubleson's work helps significantly in illuminating many otherwise puzzling theological issues in seventeenth-century England."
