'Professor Michael Roberts is our foremost English expert in Swedish history ... he writes with elegance and wit, likes a paradox and loves a fight, so that his work, while factually informative, is highly readable and delights by its controversial tone ... [This] is a rich book ... a beautifully composed and extremely satisfying review of the whole field.' English Historical Review
'Professor Roberts has clearly provided both a wealth of stimulating argument for those already acquainted with the subject, and, for a wider public, a succinct and clearly argued introduction to this important theme in early modern European history.' History Today
' ... essential reading for every early modernist working in the history of Europe.' The Historian
' ... a masterly, most readable new summary and analysis ... the presentation is lucid, convincing, a tribute to the author, and a gain for the student of European history.' American Historical Review
