• [Roy Hattersley] is very good: Catholics is a great read and spectacularly well-researched…. British Politics, especially the shipwrecked Labour Party, could do with a generation of Hattersleys – tough, committed, smart and cultivated.

  • [An] elegantly written, sweeping account of Catholics in these islands from the Reformation to the present day. It’s a tale of high drama and high stakes, by turns horrifying, romantic and ultimately hopeful.

    Peter Stanford, Observer
  • big-hearted, fair-minded, insightful...a joy to read

    Frank Cottrell-Boyce, New Statesman
  • Enjoyable… Perfectly solid, sensible and often astute.

    Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times
  • Hattersley narrates… with his characteristic energy… His talent for invective remains strong.

    Gerard Degroot, Times
