"This book offers an interesting, highly readable, in-depth and complete story of the context and events leading up to the trial of the Duchess of Kingston for bigamy. It benefits from impressive archival scholarship and it brings together many different vaguely familiar events in the late eighteenth century-the Kingston trial, the Foote scandal, the transformation in the meaning of marriage-and shows in considerable and surprising detail their interconnections. This book captures a significant set of cultural events and will certainly have an impact of the study of the cultural politics of the late 18th century." - Laura Rosenthal, Professor of English, University of Maryland
