"Readers…will be instructed, stimulated and entertained." -- Times Literary Supplement
"Although information on better-known figures is readily available, Who's Who in British History covers Britain in more depth than general resources. It provides accessible information across an entire 2,000-plus-year time span, and does so in an easy-to-use format. The cast amount of accurate, unbiased information contained here, combined with a pleasant prose style, makes this resource worthy of purchase wherever British history is studied." -- Booklist/RBB
"The writing is interesting and lively, designed to spark students' interest in history and biography." -- Choice
"Although the scope of the book makes it impossible to include the truly obscure, the book's coverage is impressive, and the articles themselves are informative and well written. The authors have taken recent historiographical developments into consideration, and, although never tendentious, they do not shy away from offering judgment… Students, casual readers, and scholars in need of historical detail will find all these volumes to be extremely valuable." -- American Reference Books Annual
