Críticas:

'Magisterial...broad in scope, powerful in its argument and brimming with healthy rage. (Burleigh's section on Islamist terrorism) sees him at his polemical best, exposing the multiple hypocrisies - and lazy thinking - of the Islamist terrorist with a sharpened pen...A riveting book.' Evening Standard

‘This timely and important books' relevance is embracing. [Burleigh] is a clear–eyed historian...he sets his targets in context...and then pulverises them with an orderly and ceaseless barrage of facts. “Blood & Rage” is in all sorts of ways an outstanding book.’ Daily Telegraph

‘A magisterial tome, broad in scope, powerful in argument and brimming with healthy rage...[a] riveting book.’ Spectator

'The clearest, sanest and most knowledgeable voice is increasingly that of the historian Michael Burleigh. No one writes so well or so reliably, and this powerful book will give another boost to his reputation.' Daily Mail

'Written in Burleigh's usual cogent and trenchant style, the book can be highly recommended.' Sunday Telegraph

‘Burleigh's evident ability to assimilate and communicate incisively...a highly intelligent and comprehensive survey of recent terrorism.’ The Observer

‘In this volume, the handiwork of terrorists over the course of a century and a half is described with remorseless, stomach-turning attention to detail...Burleigh's greatest virtue as a chronicler of violence is that he always lets the facts speak for themselves.’ Mail on Sunday

‘Rich, dense and polemical...a deft and judicious guide. The anger that informs the book is seldom allowed to cloud the author's judgement.’ The Spectator

‘Caustic and forthright...Burleigh offers a witty, robust and self–confident guide to a subject that regrettably now affects all our lives to some degree.’ Daily Express

‘Makes rollicking good reading...Burleigh is good at analysing the response to terrorism.' Sunday Times
