"Compelling and humane" 

-The Independent, Top Pick for June

"This really is a brilliant book"

- The Spectator

"A terrific, clear-eyed and balanced history that cuts through today’s toxic debates...Lockwood writes a vivid, fluent prose and moves all these remarkable tales along at a cracking pace. Most importantly, without hectoring, he does what historians are nobly meant to do - to give us pause, and allow consideration of the past to inform and enlarge our hasty opinions and myopic judgments."

- The Telegraph
