BBC History Magazine The book is extremely lucid, readable, sensibly organised, and wears its considerable learning, as they say, 'lightly'.

BBC History Magazine I cannot imagine any reader not profiting from this tight-packed and intelligently presented text.

Steven Poole, The Guardian Brilliant little book...This highly approachable text is evidently backed by a deep scholarship and is full of eye-catching perspectives.

Silverstein, who teaches the subject at Oxford University, is up-to-date, shrewd and often witty...

the book's lucidity, intelligence and indeed its brevity make it an ideal introduction to the field of study...

David Morgan, TLS The book is a gem, and it deserves a wide readership well beyond the academic community.
