"". . . Leonard has the journalist's nose for a telling anecdote and a plain, umpompous style . . . The Great Rivalry is his crowning achievement . . . written with captivating panache, packed with well-chosen quotations, full of psychological insight . . . readable, entertaining and illuminating."" - David Marquand, The New Statesman
