Helen Dale reviews THE TYRANNY OF OPINION
This is a very pleasing review by Helen Dale. She concludes: "[Blackford] writes gorgeously, guiding the reader through a great deal of material with expertise and, sometimes, élan. It is a lesson in how to argue, and how to think. is an exceptional book. Anyone who engages in political debate should read it."
