"The television historian Bettany Hughes, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, energetic, enthusiastic and rather astonished, has tramped across the continents on our behalf, making a clutch of hour-long documentary introductions to the individuals with the most profound influence on human society"
THE ARTS DESK
"In a terrific start to Genius of the Modern World, her new series on great modern(ish) thinkers, Bettany Hughes was not so much interested in what Karl Marx led to as to what led to Karl Marx"
"Bettany Hughes, in her Genius of the Modern World series, did an excellent job of not only explaining his views but charting their origins and consequences"
Andrew Billen, THE TIMES
"Redoubtably clever stuff"
