John Brewer’s work has a cut a wide swathe through political, cultural and economic history. To mark his retirement from teaching, this symposium gathers his former students, interlocutors and friends for an exchange of conversation, discussion, and convivial disagreement, along with an update from John on his current research. These twenty-two papers are not retrospective tributes in the manner of a traditional Festschrift but rather an occasion to report on exciting new findings in the many different fields touched by John’s scholarship.
