Anyone familiar with Sir Keith’s previous work will know to expect a tour de force of the historical imagination supported by wide and very deep reading in a multitude of primary sources—official and unofficial, proscriptive and descriptive, elite and, where available, nonelite, contemporary and modern. The scholar will delight in the breadth of quotation, the general reader in a fascinating story well told.
—Robert Bucholz, Loyola University Chicago, Journal of Modern History
