..."takes a valuable place beside the major compilations on the Celts published recently."
-The Journal of Indo-European Studies
"Professor Rankin's book does provide a thoroughly researched and clearly presented picture of those Celts who strayed into the classical world and of the fringe Celtic communities at the moment when they were overrun and assimilated by Rome. It will remain a standard work of reference for years to come."
-B. Cunliffe, "The Timer Higher Education Supplement
..."intriguing, wide-ranging and highly informative...Rankin's strength is his evidently wide, admiring and scholarly acquaintance with more recent Celtic mythology, ethnography and literature."
-Simon Hornblower "Times Literary Supplement
"The book is an absolute delight for those who are interested in ancient Celtic civilization. In fact, it is a long time since I have enjoyed a book in this field so thoroughly."
-Peter B. Ellis, "The Irish Democrat
"Rankin's work is stimulating, vexing and disturbing."
-J. F. Drinkwater, "The Classical Review
