A Brief History of Life in Victorian Britain

Paperback
by Paterson, Michael
The Victorian era has dominated the popular imagination like no other period, but these myths and stories also give a very distorted view of the 19th century. The early Victorians were much stranger that we usually imagine, and their world would have felt very different from our own and it was only during the long reign of the Queen that a modern society emerged in unexpected ways. Using character portraits...

A Brief History of the Private Lives of the Roman Emperors

Paperback
by Blond, Anthony

Anthony Blond's scandalous expose of the life of the Caesars is a must-read for all interested in what really went on in ancient Rome. Julius Caesar is usually presented as a glorious general when in fact he was an arrogant charmer and a swank; Augustus was so conscious of his heig...

Brief Lives of the English Monarchs: from William the Conqueror to Elizabeth II

Carolly Erickson's sensit...
