[EDITED] I had my reservations about Lewis. I had never read him, but did notice that he was a professor at Regent college, which I had (incorrectly) assumed was the Regent associated with Pat Robertson (it's not--Lewis is at the Regent in BC). My prejudgment was seriously flawed. He's an excellent historian and this work is really a fine piece of history on the topic. Not to mention fascinating. Highly recommended, especially if you are interested in British history.
