'Politicians, poets and pacifist clerics share a brilliant, crowded canvas, with the sinister figure of Hitler looming in the background. Blakeway hardly misses a trick' * Sunday Telegraph * 'A surprisingly vivid and enjoyable study of what turns out to be a semina year - 1936 . . . Blakeway brings a TV producer's eye to the sweep of history and enlives it with a plethora of fresh insights and anecdotes' * Anthony Horowitz, Sun Tel Christmas books * 'Denys Blakeway has triumphed with this book, writing with humour and sophistication about all forms of British life' * Lady * "Absorbing... the divided society of time is lucidly portrayed... colourful and cinematic. It vividly recapulates key themes played out during the 1930s" * Sunday Times * 'Witty... there are many good stories... a keen eye for telling detail... a lively book' * Michael Burleigh, Spectator * 'Stimulating and highly readable... absorbing' * Geoffrey Wheatcroft, New Statesman * 'Vivid... illuminating... four stars' * Mail on Sunday * 'An absorbing presentation...colourful and cinematic' * Piers Brendon, Sunday Times *
