"An infinitely beguiling book…a mind-teasing delight…Schama brings to bear an immense array of narrative elements."

— The New York Times Book Review

"Intriguing and provocative… Dead Certainties inspires us throughout to examine our own assumptions about history and fiction"– Newsday

"A virtuoso performance… in Schama’s hands the past loses its remoteness and takes on the noise and clutter of experience….He has become one of the few contemporary historians who are read as much for themselves as for their subjects."

— Andrew Delbanco, New Republic
