4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining. Great to see the SNP getting it in the neck., 23 July 2013

May not be the greatest literary phenomenon, go to Patrick Hamilton for that, who Sansom fairly praises at one point in his bibliography, but the book is first rate counter-factual history. Things could so easily have gone the way Sansom envisaged. The scholarship into the world of 1930s and 1940s Britain is really impressive, what a lot of work! Even though I do believe in what Sansom calls a failed dogma of free market economic, his opposition to it never gets in the way and he is always scrupulously fair in his description of the equal horrors of Stalinsm. His passionate critique of both SNP and UKIP in the end notes do give one pause for thought. Sadly, a choice between a dysfunctional and increasingly corrupt European super-state and an independent UK is not easy. Europe really does need fiscal and political union to make its monetary union work, and that outcome is to be feared. That is perhaps a different debate, and would detract from the great merits of this powerful warning from the theoretical past. Perhaps another book though, prophesying just how the EU might end up?
