A collection of essays, written by well-known specialists in their fields, which deal with the problematic and ever-shifting boundaries between the public and the private spheres in Western Europe in the eighteenth century. It examines and challenges the notion that there was a clear distinction between the emerging public sphere, which mediated between the State and individuals and provided a forum for Enlightenment debates, and the private, intimate or familial sphere.The essays focus on political, legal, historiographic, literary and gender issues in an attempt to create a more subtle and differentiated view of how men and women established and understood various 'public 'and 'private' domains, and used the languages of public and private actions and sentiments.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... a stimulating set of interdisciplinary essays concerned to trace the evolution of the private sphere in eighteenth-century Europe. * The Year's Work in Modern Language Studies, Volume 57 *
This carefully organized and scholarly collection can justifiably claim to have tested out the usefulness of the public/private distinction in a variety of new ways: the result is a thought-provoking read which will contain something of interest to most scholars of the eighteenth century. * Journal of European Studies *
