This book provides a clear analysis of the methods used in the political propaganda of the journal and the essay-sheets, including the writings of three significant authors, Tobias Smollett, Arthur Murphy, and John Wilkes.

Great book. Very light read. It was an emotional roller coaster that I quite enjoyed. It is well worth the $90.
