• Republicanism, Sinophilia and Historical Writing: Thomas Gordon (c.1691-1750) and his History of England (Brepols Publishers, 2012) -- “Thomas Gordon-republican, deist, translator of Tacitus, and mildly pornographic anti-clerical-is among the most
versatile and interesting of the opposition journalists of 18th-century England. In presenting this edition of his unfinished history of England, Giovanni Tarantino has shown us this lively figure in yet another light and heightened our understanding of radical Whig culture” (J.G.A. Pocock, Emeritus Professor, Johns Hopkins University, book cover endorsement).
"In a long introduction, Dr Tarantino attempts, with much success, not only to place the work in context but also to offer what is perhaps the fullest extant intellectual biography of Gordon; he is to be particularly praised for trudging through so many of Gordon's minor publications and the responses to them, in the process uncovering several rewarding details." (Dmitri Levitin, Trinity College Cambridge)
