I bought this book because of the regard in which it was held by Ludovic Kennedy. It was also esteemed by H G Wells, Churchill & Michael Foot, but I ,personally, find it quite exceptionally heavy going, although I am determined to finish it. It is not without arresting comments, but it is perhaps handicapped by the fact that it was published as long ago as 1872 and scholarship has moved on since then, the author's style also now seeming decidedly old-fashioned.
