"An informative and lively look at early modern England." --Publishers Weekly

"Ackroyd remains a graceful, stylish, and prolific writer as well as an attentive historian." --Christian Science Monitor

Praise for Revolution

"Ackroyd (Rebellion) continues his fast-paced overview of the tumultuous English monarchy with the fourth volume in the series, an account of the "long 18th century" (1688-1815) that covers the evolution of literature, trade, technology, and politics...Ackroyd offers suitable background on the momentous events and key figures that helped create modern Britain." --Publishers Weekly

"[T]he author eschews the detached third person preferred by stuffy professionals, favouring instead a more intimate 'you' that brings the reader into the dark alleys of industrial towns." --The Times

"For Ackroyd, the past isn't merely past; it's alive." --The Boston Globe
