This volume of ten essays discusses the pivotal role that letters have played in social, economic and political history from the 17th to the 20th century. The contributors aim to establish letters as a category of readable material, whose texts can reveal information about the context in which they were written. Topics covered include the mercantile letter, diplomatic correspondence, and what these epistolary forms suggest about the rise of a polite, literate culture in the 18th century; the experience of immigration from Europe to America during the 19th and 20the centuries; the relationship through the letter; and the working of gender in the epistolary form.
