This week's competition, in which you must identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a pamphlet that helped to provoke a revolution:
"Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong , gives it a superficial appearance of being right , and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom."
The winner receives a half-case of wine. The closing date is August 30.
Entries, including postal address and telephone number, should be sent to:
The Times Higher
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1W 1BX
Fax: 020 7782 3300
or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The winner of last week's competition - who identified Euripides' Medea - is Mark Jones of Lincoln College, Oxford.
