  • Schama is a genius of storytelling

    The Times
  • The American Future shares Kerouac's almost inebriated eloquence, the words tumbling delightfully across the page, the sentences as playfully ornate as the Charlie Parker saxophone solos that Kerouac so adored... Also an inspiring and illuminating work of history, a reflection on the essence of America with a bedrock of deep knowledge behind the bebop prose. A more inspiring evocation of the spirit of liberal America - past, present and future - does not exist

    Niall Ferguson, Financial Times
  • The master storyteller takes on the greatest story of our time, America ... Essential reading

    Tatler
  • This is the most exhilarating book that has been written about America for at least eight years...ebulliently combative...instantly engaging...weaving the immediate present with its earlier history... Schama has delivered a glittering tale of America's past

    Spectator
  • A wonderfully thought-provoking book... Schama continually illuminates the broad sweep of events with reference to telling details...fascinating
