Críticas:

Review from previous edition There is a great deal of interest in this book, and many thought-provoking questions posed ... a provocative new look at timekeeping. ( Horological Journal)

[The authors'] approach is sophisticated and refreshing. ( David Rooney, History Today)

[A] scrupulously researched...[and] impressive volume ( Ian Pindar, The Guardian)

A rigorously researched, ambitiously conceived, and richly detailed study of the practice of timekeeping - its origins, dynamics, and impact - set in a broad social and cultural context...a stunning achievement, with major implications for our understanding of technological innovation and the role of timekeeping in early modern Britain. ( A. Roger Ekirch, Journal of British Studies)

The book is full of thought-provoking evidence that will prove useful to historians and historical geographers pursuing a wide range of social and cultural enquiries...accessible and engagingly written. ( Mark Brayshay, Journal of Historical Geography)

An obligatory read for historical geographers...historians, anthropologists, sociologists, and students of the humanities. We can summarize: stimulating and provocative? Indubitably, yes. Informative? Massively, both theoretically and in the empirical chapters. Timely? Not before time, not a moment too soon, on time...essential. ( Dave A. Postles, H-Net Reviews)

This meaty and informative study fruitfully revises the existing history of timekeeping ( Penelope J. Corfield, American Historical Review)

The great achievement of Glennie and Thrift's work is that it provides us with a much richer and fuller history of timekeeping in England and Wales from the late medieval period to the advent of 'modernity' than has hithero existed. ( William Gallois, Nuncius)
