Overview

"Well written, amusing, and instructive. This is a welcome contribution to Roman cultural history and to the culture of Roman politics. There does not exist any other work in English that covers such a vast field, and covers it with erudition and elegance."—Jerzy Linderski, Paddison Professor of Latin, University of North Carolina

Editorial Reviews

The Times Literary Supplement - D. Cameron Watt
Warren Kimball has produced a remarkable book, detailed, even encyclopaedic in its archival knowledge, ... illuminating.
Reviews in American History - Patricia M. Clavin
The Juggler illustrates Kimball's mastery of Roosevelt's wartime diplomacy and the vast amount of documentary and secondary evidence he brings to the subject. . . . [These are] finely crafted essays on Franklin Roosevelt as wartime statesman. . . .
The New York Times - Herbert Mitgang
The great might-have-been is whether postwar Soviet-American relations would have been different had Roosevelt lived. All through The Juggler, Professor Kimball is unafraid to speculate.... [A] lively history.
