'Review of the State of the British Nation' was one of Daniel Defoe's greatest, but least known works. It covered his many interests, both literary and historical and was published twice and latterly three times a week in a tiny print run of 400. Surviving copies are very rare and the condition of the originals is poor. 'Defoe's Review' played a significant role in the birth of the modern press. It was not a newspaper dealing in facts but a journal of opinion and discussion. Along with politics, war, trade and religion, Defoe also used the 'Review' as an outlet for his amazing curiosity about ordinary human concerns.'Defoe's Review' tapped into a new cultural community, helping to create the climate for Steele and Addison to develop the 'Tatler' and 'Spectator' in later years. But in some ways it was itself the most interesting example as it was the first of a new genre: the eighteenth century periodical essay. This series is the first complete scholarly edition of the entire run of 'Defoe's Review'. It is fully reset and supported by full editorial apparatus, including a general introduction, volume prefaces, endnotes, and a consolidated index in the final volume. It will be useful to scholars researching the history and literature of the eighteenth century, as well as the history of print and the book.
