The Politics of Jane Austen.
Respectfully arguing against Marilyn Butler and other more "Tory" points of view, dealing with her writing and not attempting to know "the real Jane," Neill shows Austen to be necessarily and undoubtedly political and destabilizing. What does it mean to be genteel, a gentleman, English, snobbish, inclusive? A must-read, regretfully scarce. Near fine, appears not read. Macmillan Press Ltd, UK, 1999. Hb. USED. $95.00
