"Schama has a masterly ability to conjure up character and vivify conflict." (Ben Rogers Financial Times)
"He remains a master storyteller, admirably and sceptically well read in current revisionist histories, and a wonderful guide to a new history of Britain." ( The Times)
" A History of Britain, its text supplemented by wonderful illustrations, affords the rare joy of witnessing a scholar at the peak of his powers convincing the reader that he has a cracking good tale to tell and that he is loving every minute of the telling." (Roy Porter Literary Review)
"Popular history at its finest." ( Sunday Express)
"Simon Schama's A History of Britain is far more than the book of the TV series... The book is far richer and fuller, covering a huge span so economically that there is room for plenty of arresting detail... It is the sort of vivid history that keeps you awake." (Peter Lewis Daily Mail)
The third and last part of Simon Schama's highly readable and utterly engaging history of Britain. Like all great narrative historians, Schama is above all else an original prose stylist, fully in command of the evocative language as well as the source materials of historical description. This is also history conceived on a truly grand, epic scale, taking the reader from the Age of Enlightenment and revolutions in political and economic life, right up to Britain's post-imperial twilight at the close of the last century. Another BBC book that will be big at Christmas, not least because the entire 15-part series is to be repeated from September. And as this is the third volume, it is the one that everyone will buy to complete the set.
