Reviews

The book is extremely lucid, readable, sensibly organised, and wears its considerable learning, as they say, 'lightly'. * BBC History Magazine *
I cannot imagine any reader not profiting from this tight-packed and intelligently presented text. * BBC History Magazine *
Brilliant little book...This highly approachable text is evidently backed by a deep scholarship and is full of eye-catching perspectives. * Steven Poole, The Guardian *
Silverstein, who teaches the subject at Oxford University, is up-to-date, shrewd and often witty...
the book's lucidity, intelligence and indeed its brevity make it an ideal introduction to the field of study...
The book is a gem, and it deserves a wide readership well beyond the academic community. * David Morgan, TLS *
