Gripping...deeply impressive...rigorously sourced
Two big figures, one fine debut: It is quite a task to make your first book a lucid, pulsating study of not one but two huge figures, but Simon Reid-Henry pulls it off . . . Reid-Henry produces a taut history of two men who brought out the best in each other and came to embody the very notion of modern-day protest.
Lucid, well-researched and highly readable
As exciting and readable as a Cold War thriller
Reid-Henry brings back the danger and intense emotions of that revolutionary period...it reads like adventure fiction.
