  • An engaging account of three centuries of the UK's economic history ... Hoppit outlines an agenda for reform.

    Jonathan Portes, Prospect
  • A meticulous fiscal narrative of the union with Scotland, the 19th century equivalent with Ireland, and devolution of taxes more recently ... [Hoppit shows] the importance of taxation to history and contemporary politics, providing an invaluable primer to some of the underlying tensions behind contemporary political debate.

    Chris Giles, Financial Times
  • Hoppit shows how the history of financial relations within the United Kingdom is profoundly relevant to the current constitutional debate ... Hoppit steers the reader deftly through complex historical statistics ... provides much useful ammunition.
