Description: What makes a tyrant and causes him to enact such horrible atrocities? In Blood and Splendor, scholar Daniel Myerson presents compelling portraits of five of the worst rulers the world has ever known -- Nero, Ivan the Terrible, Hitler, Stalin, and Saddam Hussein -- whose diabolical deeds strain credulity. In five short but substantial bios, he shows what demons drove them to such cruelty, and reveals how the extravagance of their lives and the complexity of their obsessions were played out through their political actions, often with global consequences. Spanning centuries and continents, these biographies offer a fascinating glimpse of evil at work, as they attempt to figure out how and why history continues to produce such tyrants.
