Reviews

`Eminently readable...Starkey is particularly good at explaining the shifting tone of monarchical power..."Crown and Country" is a masterpiece of accessible history, underscored with profound scholarship...the author's passion for his subject, the royal tale of England, which is the backbone of this nation's story explodes from every page. I defy anybody not to enjoy this book.' Guardian

`Entertaining...Starkey writes with the snappy zest of an unrepentant telly-don...he has a lovely eye for a good story...he also has a nice line in snarky humour...Starkey's great skill is to weave big themes quietly into a rollicking narrative so that you absorb them almost without noticing they are there.' Daily Telegraph

`Excellent...the really crucial events in the history of the British Monarchy...are assessed with authority, wisdom and wit...This is Starkey at his fluent and entertaining best.' Sunday Telegraph

`This book...is vivid, lucid and engaging...his judgements delivered with quasi-Pontifical assurance are often acute...a very enjoyable book.' Daily Telegraph

`David Starkey tours England's monarchical horizon with gusto.' Sunday Times

`Starkey brings the past to vivid life.' Daily Express

`Combines compelling narrative and lucid analysis to guide us with a sure hand...Starkey's book will undoubtedly make him and his publishers a tidy profit.' Spectator
