Product description

Review

"A fascinating read, hard going by necessity, but extremely thought provoking on every page" (The Skinny)

"Full of the sorts of facts and figures that men like to have at their fingertips when they are at the pub...I'd never heard of the Time of Troubles, but White explains the hows and whys rather brilliantly" (Toby Clements Daily Telegraph)

"An affecting volume" (Time Out)

"A serious book, written with a light touch, on the hundred worst things humans have done to each other (that we know of)." (Guardian)

Book Description

'Compulsively readable . . . A major work . . . White is that rare phenomenon - a serious amateur who does important scholarly work that none of the professionals have taken up. He is thorough, unbiased, sophisticated, rigorous, authoritative, and, I hasten to add, tremendously entertaining. He is a real wit, with a flair for language, and a gift for the pithy, trenchant observation. The book is outstanding.' - Steven Pinker
