"The sheer scope and erudition of these pages is stunning... an imaginative tour de force." - Terry Eagleton, Guardian "Provocative, original... a powerful testimony to the unending dialogue between the present and the past that is the essence excitement of history." - David Cannadine, Observer "A stunning collection ... humane, optimistic, multi-textures, ever-meandering but always sparkling ... one of the finest and- paradoxically - most quintessentially English historians of our time." - Ben Pilmot, independent on Sunday "A magnificent and irreplaceable collection" - John Gray, New Statesman "A provocative lens into both the remote and the near British past." - Publishers Weekly "Deeply researched, intelligently argued, lovingly presented, thoroughly excitable and immensely stimulating ... [Samuel is] as comfortable with seventeenth-century sectarians as with Victorian nonconformists, as familiar with the townlands of Ireland as the streets of London." - John Gillis, Left History "A rich fund of subversive ideas." - Daniel Johnson, The Times "One of the most outstanding, original intellectuals of his generation: a passionate, creative and innovative social historian and a man of unique personal qualities and distinction of mind and spirit." - Stuart Hall, New Left Review "Raphael Samuel gave new meaning to the idea of history... He brought to the writing and popularisation of history a seemingly inexhaustible energy and creativity." - Gareth Stedman Jones, Independent "Samuel was born to be an historian. He had the vital quality of living at the same time in the past, the present and the future. Everything interested him, from public health to colonial rebellion and from street lighting to street fighting." - Times
