  • The greatest living historian of the Mediterranean

    Andrew Roberts
  • A towering achievement. No review can really do justice to the scale of Abulafia's achievement: in its epic sweep, eye for detail and lucid style.

    Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times
  • Brocaded with studious observation and finely-tuned scholarship, the overall effect is mesmerising.

    Ian Thomson, Independent
  • A memorable study, its scholarship tinged with indulgent humour and an authorial eye for bizarre detail.

    Jonathan Keates, Sunday Telegraph
  • The story is teeming with colourful characters, and Abulafia wears his scholarship lightly, even dashingly.

    Simon Sebag Montefiore, Financial Times
