"Confident, entertaining and illuminating" -- Malcolm Gaskill Sunday Telegraph "An excellent, lively account... The reader is given a front-row seat" Spectator "Lucid and well-written, it effectively captures the world of [the] time with its dramatic incidents and curious characters" -- Tom Devine Scotland on Sunday "As a vivid, intelligent retelling of the story it is a huge success. Drawing on a good range of contemporary narrative and polemical writing it captures the passion and danger of the vortex of events around the last revolution" -- John Morrill BBC History Magazine
