  • Reviewer: John Freeman, (National Public Radio)

    "By revealing time and again how often the stories nations tell themselves are in fact wrong, and reminding us of those consequences, MacMillan has formed a powerful and important argument that people...must know their true histories....This small but vastly stimulating book....is a great place for everyone to start."
  • Reviewer: David Walton, (Dallas Morning News)

    "[A] provocative little book about the shifting meanings and applications of history, its dangerous uses and abuses, which often seem to be one and the same."
  • Reviewer: David M. Kennedy, (New York Times Book Review)

    "DANGEROUS GAMES is a frequently mordant and consistently provocative indictment of the myriad ways in which history as a way of understanding the world is too often distorted, politicized and badly mishandled."
  • Reviewer: Michael Kammen, (Boston Globe)

    "Readers are likely to dissent from some of MacMillan's findings and interpretive emphases, but they should also admire her mastery of modern history and its message for our own time."
