Reviews

A brilliant polemic * Guardian *
Full of good stories ... an illuminating read * Spectator *
A tour de force, after which the history of the aircraft industry will never be quite the same again * Business History *
David Edgerton's sure-footed essay ... sees Britain from an unusual perspective ... His arguments provide sound backing for the idea that modern Britain is as much a warfare state as a welfare one * Economist *
