This collection of essays continues a favourite game of Anglo-French intellectual life since the eighteenth century: the game of cultural transfers and comparisons between English and French intellectuals themselves. The contributions, which have been written by scholars from a variety of disciplines, address a broad range of issues, including the international circulation of economic, political and literary ideas, the translation and reception of authors in various contexts, and the contest for 'Englishness' or 'Frenchness' both at home and abroad. The Anglo-French relationship is used here as an entry into the conflicting demands that intellectual life should be trans-national and cosmopolitan, and that intellectuals should be the representatives of the national mind.
