Reviews

[A] fascinating historical exploration that spends as much time in our modern era with the rebels and radicals who have sought to co-opt Christmas for their own political, ideological and theological agendas as much as it does our ancient ancestors. * PopMatters * Gerry Bowler has a fascianting story to tell involving everyone from Puritans and anti-consumerists to Bolsheviks and atheists. * The Bookseller * Bowler offers a fascinating reflection upon the development of Christmas from earliest Christianity * Adrian Burdon, Methodist Recorder * Historian Gerry Bowler's Christmas in the Crosshairs says no feast or festival has endured so many attacks on its existence * Daniel Bates, Daily Mail online * a lively and well-researched history of Christmas across the centuries * Timothy Larsen, Times Literary Supplement * far-ranging and intriguing book * John Carey, The Times * Bowler's research into the origins of popular Christmas icons and images is thorough and often surprising. * John Carey, The Times *
