A work of scholarship written with the general reader in mind ... a pleasure to read. * Spectator *
What the authors have given us in the proverbial multum in parvo * Sunday Telegraph *
Revels in the accretions of detail and myth ... first-class scholarship and an engagingly demotic style * Independent *
Stirring stuff! This is a welcome and well-written book ... it reassesses myths, politely debunks many misconceptions about what we know- and what we don't know - to put the fabulous monument in context from its founding to the present. -- Lindsey Davis, author of the Falco series
A wonderful book, worthy of its subject: horrifying, impressive, blood-soaked, occasionally very funny and always entertaining -- Robert Harris
