9780297812982: The Book of Modern Scandal: From Byron to the Present Day

This anthology of scandal begins with Lord Byron when the growth of the press marked the beginning of the public exposure of private behaviour which both shocked and titillated the reading public. All the major scandals are here - from the great financial and sexual outrages of the Victorian era, to the sale of honours by Lloyd George, the great 1920s scandals in America, the Happy Valley set in Kenya, through to the postwar years of Profumo, Watergate and recent royal scandals. Political, social, financial or sexual - the book uses contemporary accounts reveals how much and "acceptable" behaviour has changed over the last 200 years.
