Notă biografică

Ben Wilson received his MPhil in history from Cambridge University. He is the author of five critically acclaimed books, including What Price Liberty?, which won the Somerset Maugham Award. He lives in Suffolk, England.


Washington Times
“[Wilson] skillfully melds seeming disparate happenings — a global jigsaw, if you will — into a narrative that is both convincing and entertainingly readable.”

“An insightful and engaging portrait of the world in the 1850s.”

Daily Telegraph, UK
“[With] a rip-roaring style to match his subject.... [Wilson's] grasp of the interplay between politics, economics and individuals is admirable.
This is narrative history of the highest quality.”

The Times, UK
“[A] rollercoaster of a book…the scholarship is certainly impressive but the drama is what delights. Wilson's knack for detail is what brings this history alive.... Heyday is a lot like its subject; it's a big-bearded book of enormous scope and unstoppable momentum.”

Roanoke Times
“This is history as it should be told — all those momentous events born in a bucket of Malay sap.”

Publishers Weekly
“Wilson turns his considerable talents as a historian and raconteur to the turbulent 1850s… making a persuasive case for the decade as both precursor and crucible of today's world.”

Kirkus Reviews
“An above-average addition to the when-the-modern-age-began genre.”
