"...a quality and 'mould-breaking' book which develops a coherent, continuous, authoritative argument, and expresses, with sustained and impressive clarity, the moral-political perspective that JohnQuicke has adopted ... There are few authors who could achieve the integrated reach that is achieved in this book." - Professor Andrew Pollard, University of Bristol
