Reviews

Genius.
[White] doesn't take sides so much as report the facts--and the death tolls. . . . Full of fascinating information about parts of the world little-known to most Westerners.
A fascinating read thanks to White's keen grasp of history and his wry take on the villains of the past.
White . . . gives voice to the suffering of ordinary people that, inexorably, has defined every historical epoch.
