Reviews

'An outstanding work of historical scholarship ... Simon Schama writes brilliantly. He can bring a character alive in a sentence ... This powerful book reads with the ease of a novel. Every page glitters with intelligence and perception. In every way Patriots and Liberators is an extraordinary acheivement.' J.H. Plumb 'This remarkable book is more than a revision, it is a revelation.' A.J.P. Taylor, Observer 'A dramatic story, full of pathos and true comedy. If any book may be said to inhale without sententiousness the clear, calm and steadying air of a European ideal, this is it.' Michaels Ratcliffe, The Times 'Schama's book is written in the grand manner, its sweep is as impressive as its erudation and the constant brilliance of its style. He give the Dutch revolution back to the people to whom it belonged -- the Dutch.' Economist
