Sounds of Silence

Critiques published in EJW often focus on particular works or doings. In such cases, we invariably invite the commented-on parties to reply.

In the table below, column A lists authors of critiques. The hyperlinks take you to the critique.

In column B are listed individuals who probably should have replied to the critique, but didn’t. (It’s never too late—the invitation remains open.)
