Review of the hardback: 'To put it simply, if you want to know the state of 'Catholic' history today, this is where you start ... Questier liberally sprinkles his text with humour, ensuring it never becomes too stifling, always the danger with a proverbial doorstep of a book ... he has successfully produced a masterclass, so often neglected by academic historians, in straddling that great juncture between popular and academic history.' Catholic Times Review of the hardback: '... you get the feeling that Questier is enjoying himself ... the term 'must read' is over used but, it's the only possible description.' Catholic Times
