Reviews

Schama at his best, a labour of love, as full of memorable incident as a Bellow novel and wittier than a Woody Allen movie * The Times *
Schama has written a proud and personal story of his people, one that will make a good starting point for those interested in one of history's most fascinating and tragic tales -- Josh Glancy * Sunday Times *
Inspiring... Schama tells it with panache, weaving facts and anecdotes into a vivid history * Observer *
Unforgettable...a delicious cacophony of conversations and clamorous arguments echoing across history * Daily Telegraph *
A spirited, immensely enjoyable and wide-ranging account... [expresses] both the triumphs and the tragedies with irrepressible enthusiasm and his customary eloquence * Financial Times *
