Editorial Reviews

Review

Outstanding ... The most accessible distillation of that conflict yet written. (The Boston Globe)

Energetically written and lucid, it makes an ideal introduction to the subject. (The New York Times)

A fresh and admirably concise history . . . Gaddis’s mastery of the material, his fluent style and eye for the telling anecdote make his new work a pleasure. (The Economist)
