Reviews

"Burrow marshals a lifetime of knowledge and guides the reader effortlessly across the ages." --Time "A fascinating compendium." --The New Yorker "A triumph. . . . Reminds us of how often the narratives of the great historians resemble works of literature and of how important a secure grasp of historical fact can be to the progress of culture and the fate of nations." --The Wall Street Journal "Absorbingly informative. . . . An exemplar of how history should be written. Witty, scholarly and, above all, fair." --The Times (London)
