Review

Terrific: bold, ambitious and passionate -- Peter Frankopan, author of The Silk Roads

Tom Holland is fun to read, monstrously erudite, wickedly joyful, and ahead of the established consensus, on average, by four years, three months, and two days -- Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of the Incerto (The Black Swan, Antifragile...)

This extraordinary book is vintage Tom Holland: history boldly and elegantly retold, with fascinating interconnections traced to create a narrative that cannot fail to stimulate, for it leads to a never-ending question -- Diarmaid MacCulloch

Holland is an illuminating guide on a journey from Ancient Athens to 21st-century gay rights ―

Fizzing with insights and challenges, this is one history book that is timely and important, as well as a feast of intellectual entertainment -- Christopher Hart ―
Sunday Times

Tom Holland's stupendous new book . . . There isn't a page of this magnificent book that does not contain some
fascinating detail and the narrative is held together with a novelist's eye for character and theme

-- Tim Stanley ― History Today

A brilliant meditation on how Christianity in its Latin and Protestant forms entirely changed the way humans conceive life and their relationship to each other -- Helen Thompson ―
New Statesman

An absorbing survey of Christianity's subversive origins and enduring influence is filled with vivid portraits, gruesome deaths and moral debates . . . Holland has all the talents of an accomplished novelist: a gift for narrative, a lively sense of drama and a fine ear for the rhythm of a sentence -- Terry Eagleton ―
Guardian

If great books encourage you to look at the world in an entirely new way, then Dominion is
a very great book indeed . . . Written with terrific learning, enthusiasm and good humour, Holland's book is not just supremely provocative, but often very funny ― Sunday Times

A bravura swing through centuries of Western European history . . . a cornucopia of characters and information: almost everyone would learn from it something they didn't know . . . the range and unobvious sweep of his narrative are most impressive ―
Times Literary Supplement

An erudite and fascinating look at the enduring legacy of Christianity, which, as numbers of believers are dwindling ―
The Lady

Those who like their history with a dose of lessons about the present will be impressed by Tom Holland's ambitious
