London: John Murray, 1938. This Edition is not for sale in the U.S.A. Wraps. 382, , 45,  pages. The Quarterly Review was a literary and political periodical founded in March 1809 by the well known London publishing house John Murray. It ceased publication in 1967. Typical of early nineteenth-century journals, reviewing in the Quarterly was highly politicized and on occasion excessively dismissive. Writers and publishers known for their Unitarian or radical views were among the early journal's main targets. Prominent victims of scathing reviews included the Irish novelist Lady Morgan (Sydney Owenson), the English poet and essayist Walter Savage Landor, the English novelist Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and her husband the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

John Allen is a South African journalist with experience in newspapers, news agencies, a journalists’ union, and South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. He became a journalist out of school at 18. He became press secretary to Desmond Tutu—upon whom he had reported since 1976—after Tutu was elected Anglican archbishop of Cape Town in 1986. In 1996 he moved with Tutu to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and in 1998 accompanied Tutu to run his office at Emory University in Atlanta in the United States for two years. He has won awards in South Africa for defence of press freedom and in the U.S. for excellence in church journalism. John Allen returned to South Africa in 2004 to write “Rabble-Rouser for Peace”, a biography of Desmond Tutu. In 2008 he edited his third collection of Tutu speeches, sermons and writings, under the title “God is not a Christian”.
