The methodological concern with performance leads to some impressive explication of the sources, in which particular phrases and oblique details become entry points into a dense portrait of one community and its relationship to a larger historical forces. Through a wealth of sophisticated textual analysis, Somerville suggests the degree to which the "public sphere" emerged as a grass-roots phenomenon, articulated in the word sand gestures of particular individuals engaged in the actual practice of culture. This study will also prove to be valuable for its efficient condensation of recent scholarship on print culture and colonial America.--"Journal of American History"
