“This new edition moves this novel from the periphery towards the center of the discourse concerning the evolution of science fiction literature in the 19th century. Professor Ruddick’s scholarly apparatus is thorough, admirable, and revelatory.”
--- David Hartwell, Senior Editor, Tor Books

“Caesar’s Column has a compelling, horrifying fascination, and this new edition will be widely welcomed by utopian and science-fiction scholars. The novel’s apocalyptic climax has a disturbing contemporary resonance.”--- Patrick Parrinder, Professor of English, University of Reading
