"Stephen Hague's The Gentleman's House in the British Atlantic World, 1680-1780 focuses our attention on the understudied eighteenth-century phenomenon of the small country house. ... this is an engaging and useful book, that sheds light on an important aspect of British Atlantic architectural practice and effectively uses it to illuminate unresolved issues in our understanding of eighteenth-century social structure." (Emma Hart, American Historical Review, December, 2016)

"Clearly written, well structured, and appropriately illustrated, the book can be confidently recommended to students as well as scholars interested in the interrelationship between design and society." (William Whyte, English Historical Review, Vol. 131 (549), April, 2016)

"The research is inventive and wide ranging, and the book serves as a useful guide to the literature relevant to such a study. ... Hague's study will be a useful work of reference for anyone studying these, and a source to be widely cited by those looking at the material culture and social history of the eighteenth-century Atlantic World." (Roger H. Leech, Vernacular Architecture, Vol. 47 (1), 2016)
