About the Author:

PAUL JOHNSON is a British author and historian whose works span the millennia and run the gamut of human activities. His books include Modern Times, A History of the Jews, Intellectuals, The Birth of the Modern, and The Quest for God -- which have been translated into many languages. He has been a frequent contributor to the Daily Telegraph, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Spectator, and other newspapers and magazines. He has lectured to academic, business, and political audiences all over the world.

Review:

''Beautifully constructed . . . An idiosyncratic viewpoint has enabled Mr. Johnson to extract a great deal of new information to add to the conventional account of English, or British, history.'' --Times Literary Supplement

''An excellent book that will stir up a great many people, and so it should.'' --New Statesman

''He is abreast of modern scholarship, and a reader with some command of English history will find Johnson's iconoclasm stimulating and challenging. His coverage of the last 200 years deserves to be labeled brilliant historical journalism.'' --Library Journal

''This is a John Bull of a book, the sort of book that Cobbett might have written . . . Splendid stuff.'' --Observer
