Reviews

  • There is a plethora of books about globalisation, many saying roughly the same thing. This one is different ... This book is a gem ... Her theme is different, rich and compelling ... A pleasure to read

    Guardian
  • Very, very readable; very powerful - this is a very illuminating book

    Clare Short, A Good Read
  • The greatest tribute to any book is the conviction upon closing it that the senseless finally makes sense. That's the feeling left by Amy Chua's World on Fire ... provocative, evocative, nuanced and highly readable, starting at page one

    Washington Post
  • Ambitiously conceived, impressively researched and gracefully written, Amanda Foreman has crafted a narrative rich in detail, anecdote, insight and personalities. It puts a human face - many human faces - on a brutal conflict remorselessly descending into an inhuman total war

    Brian Jenkins
  • A tour de force, a work of extreme virtuosity both in the research and the telling
