Review of the Previous Edition:

"The general reader, after deep gulps of prose, will wonder whythey were ever led to think that history is a dull subject. Stone'sfellow professionals will only be able to take his narrative insmall doses, needing frequent pauses to think, snort or wrigglewith envy." The Spectator

'This is a facinating book, elegant, witty, original,informative and many-sided...The general reader, after deep gulpsof prose, will wonder why they were ever led to think that historyis a dull subject. His fellow professionals will only be able totake his narrative in small doses, needing frequent pauses tothink, snort or wriggle with envy... There really cannot have beena teacher like Norman Stone for many years, and his readers willnow jealously compete with his pupils for his time.' John KeeganmSpectator
