Reviews

  • "A bracing argument, and Kealey writes clearly and well...fascinating"

    Guardian
  • "Hugely ambitious, stupendously confident and unrelentingly provocative. It is indeed a tropical storm of a book; it throws out a whirlwind of ideas, it deluges its readers with facts and statistics, buffets them with challenges to conventional wisdom and leaves them feeling like heroes when they survive the commotion of reading it"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "Absorbing...a gloriously idiosyncratic work"

    Sunday Times
  • "Rip-roaring... Kealey's gallop through capitalism, sociology, history, economics and science is a stimulating and splendid read"

    The Times
  • "An entertaining canter through global history...energy and muscular prose are much in evidence"

    The Times Higher Educational Supplement
