***** "Informative and timely ... a readable primer on the world's biggest problems" -- Daily Express; "A timely and exhilarating clamber over the walls of history" -- Peter Frankopan, author of The Silk Roads; "Accomplished, well researched and pacey ... for anyone who wants to look beyond the headlines and explore the context of some of the biggest challenges facing the world today, it is a fascinating and fast read" -- City AM; "Accessible and timely ... ultimately, Marshall's lesson is one that we should all heed: differences can be overcome" -- Prospect; "A very knowledgeable, timely book and a good primer on current problems in a longer-term context" -- Irish News; "Perceptive ... Marshall examines the walls - physical, religious, ethnic, psychological - that fence people off or, at times, pen them in... He has written frankly about the world. We deny this at our own peril" -- The National; "Striking words ... Tim Marshall performs the daunting, yet highly pertinent, task of trying to make sense of one of the biggest issues of our times: in a world that is increasingly globalised, a backlash apparently grows ever stronger. By taking a global view, Divided successfully brings some much-needed perspective" - --Northern Slant
