This book brings a vast amount of new evidence to bear upon issues which currently preoccupy the scholarly community. It explores the boundaries between history, literary criticism, cultural and media studies and intellectual biography, embracing the debates surrounding the commercialization of culture and concerning the relative importance of production versus reception in the process by which cultural texts create meaning. It is informed by recent developments in the field of periodical research which have produced a model of the periodical text as a culturally embedded and uniquely interactive medium.
