  • A dazzling and dramatic narrative of a century of high-speed change ... A must-have for anyone seriously interested in London’s history

    Evening Standard
  • Magisterial

  • Magnificent ... Charged with infectious enthusiasm for its subject, this is an unmissable treat which ought to be top of every Londoner’s reading list

    Time Out
  • A brilliant account of the bursting, overflowing city, with its glittering wealth and harrowing poverty

    Financial Times
  • Jerry White is to London as Boswell is to Johnson... London in the Nineteenth Century should sit on your shelf alongside Debrett’s, the Oxford dictionary, and your complete set of Dickens

    Daily Telegraph
  • White brings to his book a diligence and contagious zest that may serve to discourage anyone from ever tackling the subject again

    Sunday Times
  • Fascinating … irresistible
