"An agile piece of historical writing witty, selective, and illuminating." New Yorker. "George Dangerfield writes with gusto, sense, and authority. His agreeable, eloquent book is full of people, conflicts, ideas, and color. It is a learned book, and witty and skillful; on every page it is thoughtful, clever, and original." Saturday Review. "History exploded with mature perception, pointed anecdote, and lively interpretation." New York Times."
