Literary Review

Beautifully written with a firm hand on his facts ... startlingly good -- Sandra Callard ―
On Magazine

An intelligent and provocative polemic -- Andrew Lynch ―

This is traditional, kings-and-things, great-men history with all its dates and famous quotations in place ... Jenkins has a newspaper columnist's aphoristic verve ―
Spectator

A characteristically bold, wry, fluent, combative gallop through English history -- Max Hastings

Full of good writing and lively anecdotes ... Food for thought ―
