Product description

Review

Ferguson is the most brilliant British historian of his generation ... he writes with splendid panache (The Times)

One of the world's leading historians (Hamish McRae Independent)

Civilization is another masterpiece ... a pulsing energy suffuses his account [and] fascinating facts burst like fireworks on every page (Dominic Lawson Sunday Times)

This is sharp. It feels urgent. Ferguson, with a properly financially literate mind, twists his knife with great literary brio (Andrew Marr Financial Times)

A dazzling history of Western ideas (Economist)
