Item Description...
From Herod to Papa Doc Duvalier, from Nero to Saddam Hussein, here are 50 chilling portraits of the despots whose iron-fisted rule left an indelible mark on the history of the world. Presenting a compelling chronology of the moments in history when the principles of government and law were corrupted by the vanity of the ambitious and unscrupulous, "The Tyrants" recounts the story of each dictator individually. From irresistible rise to inevitable fall, it describes how these men and women - as often outcasts or outsiders as kings or queens - were able to manipulate the political climate of their states to seize absolute power and examines the destruction and suffering they invariably left in their wake.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Some bad dudes.  Apr 19, 2007
This book portrays approximately fifty of the world's all time bad men and women. The summary sheet on each bad person is only three pages long, so a reader will not get alot of insight into the mind of each tyrant. Some of the later tyrants don't rate that high in my opinion, and I am not sure why they are included. What about Ethiopian strongman Mengsti or how about Bob Mugabe. What about Castro.

This book is Foss's view on the all time tyrants. Most of them are right on mark. This is an OK read, but one will not get much info from the summary stories.

Get up to date without the hassle.  Feb 8, 2007
This is an amazing book in terms of layout and design. Each tyrant is given 2-4 pages of info with a quote and photo or drawing.

I've read 3 of the ~50 synopsises in the book of the tyrants that litter history. I would not say the aim of the book is to educate you on the finer points of Wu Zetian's reign, you will find out what he did and how in about 8 minutes. Example: The paragraph describing the leadup/execution of the Iraq war of 2003 is one paragraph.

Well written and easy to digest for anyone interested in a paper version of Wiki-length exposition.
