About the Author

A.J.P. Taylor (1906-1990) was one of the most controversial historians of the twentieth century. He served as a lecturer at the Universities of Manchester, Oxford, and London.


Taylor's most perfect work of art, a miracle of proportion, language and insight * Robert Skidelsky *
A dazzling exercise in revisionism which summed up Taylor's paradoxical, provocative and inventive approach to history * The Times *
Taylor was a lifelong dissenter ... at his best - as in The Origins of the Second World War ... he shifted the gorund of major debates -- Ben Pimlott * Financial Times *
No historian of the past century has been more accessible -- Niall Ferguson * Sunday Telegraph *
An almost faultless masterpiece * Observer *
Highly original and penetrating ... No one who has digested this enthralling work will ever be able to look at the period again in quite the same way * Sunday Telegraph *
