What People are Saying About This
“Lively writing, a wealth of historical detail and wide-ranging references from Aeschylus to Philip Pullman contribute to a work that successfully portrays its subject not as a hero, but as a complex, flawed human being. The bibliography and source notes are thorough and include a superb list of websites for listening to important political speeches. Exemplary history writing.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
