A spine-chilling chronicle of dictators and their crimes against humanity, Tyrants introduces the most bloodthirsty madmen - and women - ever to wield power over their unfortunate fellow human beings. From Herod the Great, persecutor of the infant Jesus, to Adolf Hitler, mass murderer and instigator of the most devastating war the world has ever seen, this books examines history's most infamous despots and tells in vivid detail the story of the lives they led, their ruthless climb to the top, and the destruction and sorrow they left in their wake. A gripping and compelling portrait of the darker side of politics and power.Biographie de l'auteur :
