Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Relaxed, unpretentious, and accessible." --"The New York Times Book Review"

"Ackroyd writes with such lightly-worn erudition and a deceptive ease that he never fails to engage." --"The Telegraph "(UK)

"Superbly accessible and readable." --"The Financial Times "(UK)

"Ackroyd clearly relishes the wicked glamour of the family which presided over the Reformation, saw off the Spanish Armada, founded the British Empire and left the country they ruled a great European power . . . Fluent and colorful." --"Sunday Express "(UK)

"As so often in Ackroyd's books there are irresistible small details of everyday life in historic London." --"Daily Express "(UK)

British Praise for "Tudors

"As so often in Ackroyd's books there are irresistible small details of everyday life in historic London." --"Daily Express "(UK)

"Ackroyd's information concerning Cromwell provokes a different reaction from that gained by reading Hilary Mantel. . . . This is a fascinating read, an accessible history where the immense research is wittily presented and where the ideas are profound and moving." --"Newtown Review of Books"

Praise for "Foundation

""Relaxed, unpretentious, and accessible." --"The New York Times Book Review "on "Foundation"

Praise for "Tudors"

"While the author focuses on the politics of religious change, this is an accessible account, made even more so by anecdotes revealing the personalities of the main characters (e.g., Henry VIII became so obese that his bed had to be enlarged to a width of seven feet, and Mary Stuart wore crimson underclothes at her execution in 1587)." --"Publishers Weekly"

"A solid multivolume popular history: readable, entirely nonrevisionist and preoccupied by politics, religion and monarchs--a worthy rival to Winston Churchill's "History of the English Speaking Peoples."" --"Kirkus Reviews"

""

"Highly engaging.... Ackroyd presents in rich prose and careful explanations how the English Reformation was not a movement of the people but a personal project of King Henry." --"Booklist "(starred review)
"Peter Ackroyd is energetic and gifted enough to have mastered his sources and produced a sparklingly fresh account of Tudor England. ... Ackroyd has a wonderful eye for the telling detail, cameos that stick in the mind. ... If you want a finely written, racy account of the monster Henry VIII and his brood, a history book that really fires your imagination and is often so exciting that you cannot put it down, you should get this book." --"The Weekly Standard
""Ackroyd presents the Tudors in a way frequently overlooked by other popular histories and novels, depicting them as a force that continues to affect both English and international societies today, rather than as an early-modern soap opera. ... Each player in this real-life historical drama is clearly drawn, their major contributions and connections made apparent without losing the thread of the overall themes. "Tudors" takes a comprehensive approach to early-modern English history that is rarely attempted, but is, in Ackroyd's hands, a success." --Shelf Awareness
"Ackroyd writes with such lightly worn erudition and a deceptive ease that he never fails to engage."
