Rough Crossings Reviews
"Schama's Oxbridge voice, so overwhelmingly appealing to American listeners, who innately associate its sounds with the presence of deep wells of intelligence, is a lovely serving dish for his book's meal, decorating and presenting his work with an authoritative upper-class flourish." - PW.
"The book's strength is the discussion of Sierra Leone, in which Schama uses original source material to create an absorbing real-life tale. It is here that he hits his stride. Highly recommended" - Library Journal.
"An important contribution to the history of the Revolution, and of slavery in America." - Kirkus Reviews.
