Burleigh has always had an eye for compelling hard detail’ Sunday Times (Sunday Times)

‘Bracing … refreshingly pessimistic’ Observer (Observer)

‘In this wide-ranging book Michael Burleigh demonstrates a mastery of global affairs that would put most experts in any one of his chosen chapter headings to shame … quite brilliant.’ Mail on Sunday (Mail on Sunday)

‘Brilliant, fact-packed, judicious and above all debunking … The Best of Times, the Worst of Times will not leave its readers cheered, but they will at least be superbly informed about thedramas to come.’ Daily Telegraph (Daily Telegraph)

‘Swashbuckling … a breakneck geopolitical gallop across the globe in the hands of a historian and commentator at the peak of his powers.’ Evening Standard (Evening Standard)

‘[A] trenchant and galloping account of the opening years of the century … ruthlessly impolite’ Irish Examiner (Irish Examiner)

‘A history of the modern world, set out clearly, with trenchant
scholarship and wit.’ Daily Telegraph Books of the Year

(Daily Telegraph Books of the Year)
