Editorial Reviews

'He posses not only the vast knowledge required to fish in such wide waters, but the rarer capacity to synthesize his results; his powers of analysis are only equalled by his powers of judgment. He always keeps a firm grasp on the main thread of his argument; he never swamps the reader with mountains of unassimilated facts; he possesses not only a Gibbonian commoon sense ... but a neo-Gibbonian prose style which is a delight to read, and is a welcome rarity among contemporary scholars. Rarer still is his astringent wit, as relevant as it is illuminating.' The Times Literary Supplement
