About this title

Synopsis:

Smart, educated, and accomplished people--often the pillars of society--sometimes behave in the most uncharacteristic and fascinating ways. These are stories of adultery, perversion, shameless greed, theft, and deception--scandal in its rawest forms--that have brought down presidents, prime ministers, clergy, and famous people from every walk of life. The gripping dramas climax in catastrophic exposures and career-destroying indiscretions that rival great fiction and are all the more astounding because they are seminal moments in our history.

- The stories star famous names and often share selfish desires, yet each tale shocks us--sometimes for its audacity, sometimes for its complexity, sometimes for its pure idiocy.
- Inside you’ll find several in-depth accounts of the greatest scandals in history.

Alternately disturbing and amazing, the narratives of History’s Greatest Scandals reveal clandestine affairs, underhanded political dealings, blatant criminal activity, and other dramatic episodes that erupt in the lives of successful people.
