"So expansive in its scope, and so well written, that to call it a masterpiece somehow doesn't seem to do it justice. . . . Foreman displays her exceptional gift for storytelling and for making history both fascinating and relevant."--The Christian Science Monitor "History as a Cecil B. DeMille epic . . . One puts down A World on Fire with a sense of awe."--The Boston Globe "Thrilling narrative on a grand scale."--History Today "[A] remarkable book . . . an extraordinary cast."--The New York Times Book Review "[A] magisterial history."--Newsweek
