Reviews

Exceptionally rich and variegated...This might be a book for ministers to take on holiday in the summer. -- Jessie Childs * Guardian * Vivid and informative... somehow one can't help wondering whether there might be a lesson [here] for British commerce today. -- Noel Malcolm * Telegraph * The book is crammed with unexpected sidelights of 16th century London * Times * A city contending with immigration, religious difference and the threat of violence... the unspoken comparisons that haunt this story are unavoidably poignant * Times Higher Education Supplement * Like all the best stories, it is about the timeless tides of power and influence... consistently illuminating and filled with pleasing resonance -- Sinclair McKay * Spectator *
