5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greats, 29 April 2011
This is one of the great foundational texts in contemporary Science Studies. This edition is identical (even down to pagination) to the first edition, plus some added discussion. Bloor is an amazingly lucid writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a Peake, 18 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Dirty old rascal (Paperback)
If you like Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast trilogy, you'll love Trevor Harley's Dirty Old Rascal. The novel's atmosphere of paranoid intensity and its surreal characters draw the reader effortlessly into the story: the central role of cuisine in the protagonist's daily challenges provides a third dimension to the sensual immediacy of the mysterious Castle, while the sometimes comic social dysfunction at the heart of this intensely realized world can make the food seem like the Castle's only sane refuge. The novel's climax will leave you stunned, delighted, and appalled--and hungry for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars The great Arnold Bennett, 8 Jan. 2007
Arnold Bennett was fine writer, and his more light-hearted novels, like this one, are delights. The only reason I don't give this five stars is that it's a bit episodic, in keeping with the magazine serialization from which it sprang; I like even more the sequel, also about Mr. Machin, called The Regent.
