Reviews

"Schama has a masterly ability to conjure up character and vivify conflict." -- Ben Rogers * Financial Times *
"He remains a master storyteller, admirably and sceptically well read in current revisionist histories, and a wonderful guide to a new history of Britain." * The Times *
"Simon Schama's A History of Britain is far more than the book of the TV series... The book is far richer and fuller, covering a huge span so economically that there is room for plenty of arresting detail... It is the sort of vivid history that keeps you awake." * Daily Mail *
"Popular history at its finest." * Sunday Express *
"A History of Britain, its text supplemented by wonderful illustrations, affords the rare joy of witnessing a scholar at the peak of his powers convincing the reader that he has a cracking good tale to tell and that he is loving every minute of the telling." -- Roy Porter * Literary Review *
