Rezensionen
"Die Beiträge des Bandes sind z.T. zwar sehr speziell, aber durchweg gelungen. Ihr besonderes Verdienst liegt in der Schließung einer Forschungslücke." Rainer Wehse, Fabula, 56/1-2 (2015) "Ein wohltuend bescheiden auftretender Band, dessen Beiträge durchweg Interessantes und Unbekanntes zutage fördern. Dass man dabei oft schmunzelt und bisweilen sogar lacht, macht das Buch zu einem Lesevergnügen." Tobias Becker, Neue Politische Literatur, 59 (2014) "All in all this is an attractive volume containing a wide-ranging and noteworthy assortment of contributions." John Parkin, HUMOR, 27 (2014)
