Publication of the Historical Thesaurus was accompanied by widespread media attention and enthusiastic notices and interviews in print, online and on radio and television. Reviews and editorials appeared in the Times, the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, the Sunday Times, the Sun, the Evening Standard, the Daily Record, the Daily Mail, the New Yorker, Harper’s Magazine, BBC News, and the Literary Review. In addition to being named a Book of the Year in the Guardian and the Times Literary Supplement, the Thesaurus received the Saltire Society’s Research Book of the Year Award in 2009.
We list the academic reviews and endorsements of the Thesaurus on these pages, alongside details of the two launch events that were held for the print version. Professor Christian Kay’s press diary, a personal view of the interviews she gave in the period surrounding the publication of HTOED, is also available here.
