"'In A Child's History we see Dickens near the height of his powers: combining a mastery of plain language, sharp if sometimes heavy irony, and the keenest eye for evocative detail... Dickens had no interest in serving up the bland fare that others may have felt more suitable for a child's palate - and less threatening to the status quo. His is sectarian history: radical, opinionated, and, to most readers, all the better for it.' David Starkey"About the Author:
