Quoted in "Power Inc" by David Rothkopf p 139

I have not doubt that David Rothkopf loved this book. The overall idea was fascinating to me, particularly how many of the events were related. Rapport helps us better understand modern Europe by seeing these important events in context.

Much of it was a slog, pawing through details interesting mainly to historians. It is a wonderful historical reference, with very specific insights into events. If you love history, particularly western history, you need to read this one.
