In addition to the Letters, this edition provides a translation of Voltaire's Proposal for a Letter about the English, a general Introduction, chronology, notes, and bibliography.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This fluid new translation, with abundant explanatory notes and an insightful Introduction to Voltaire's literary strategies, will make an excellent edition for students, as well as a useful resource for scholars. --Ann Blair, Harvard University
This crisp new translation captures the spirit of Voltaire's original, and John Leigh's introductory essay provides essential insights into the myriad ways in which this groundbreaking work of the French Enlightenment solicits the approval and--even more importantly--the complicity of its intended readers. --John Iverson, Whitman College
