A sweeping survey, . . . evocatively illustrated and engagingly written.” Harriet Ritvo, New York Times Book Review Dashingly written and firmly unsentimental.” Keith Thomas, New York Review of Books Extremely learned and penetrating . . . [and] most entertaining.” Conor Cruise O’Brien, New Republic Challenging, fascinating, enormously well informed.” John Barrell, London Review of Books [Colley] has a capacity for historical generalizations that puts her into the front rank among her contemporaries.” E. P. Thompson, Dissent Absolutely magnificent.” Jeffrey Hart, National Review

Review:

“A sweeping survey, . . . evocatively illustrated and engagingly written.”—Harriet Ritvo, New York Times Book Review


“Dashingly written and firmly unsentimental.”—Keith Thomas, New York Review of Books


“Extremely learned and penetrating . . . [and] most entertaining.”—Conor Cruise O’Brien, New Republic


"A forceful and eloquent analysis of the 'subject, no citizen' mind-set which bound the English, Scots and Welsh together.  Impressive prose, and sharp interpretation of visual material, compelled assent."—Christopher Harvie, Times Literary Supplement

(Christopher Harvie Times Literary Supplement)

". . . the most dazzling and comprehensive study of a national identity yet to appear in any language. It ranges as widely as its subject demands—taking in things often forgotten by conventional political history. . . . It is a model of its kind."—Tom Nairn, The Scotsman (Tom Nairn The Scotsman 2009-03-24)
