Reviews

Praise for the author's A Brief Guide to the Greek Myths:
Eminently sane, highly informative, and reasonably priced.

-- Paul Cartledge * BBC History magazine *

Praise for the author's A Brief History of Atlantis:
As his exhaustive survey shows, Atlantis has been adapted to countless ideologies and agendas over time, serving the needs of every sort of reader - "harmless hippies or Heinrich Himmler", in Mr Kershaw's memorable phrase.

-- James Romm * Wall Street Journal *

Praise for the author:
The experts interviewed (a diverse bunch that includes academics, military leaders, civil-rights figures and more) [for TV documentary series Barbarians Rising] are both entertaining and illuminating, framing the barbarian cause, broadly, as a struggle for freedom against an iron-fisted opponent with unparalleled resources.

-- Brian P. Kelly * Wall Street Journal *
