5.0 out of 5 stars Personification of Perfection
Having had this recommended to me for my A-Level course by a history scholar, I decided to purchase this book. It was a decision that I wasn't to regret.

Not only is divided up into easy manageable sections, so that it is easy to find what you are looking for, it is also written with such a concise analysis, that there is no better book on this subject...
