The Evil Empire: 101 Ways that England Ruined the World
They invented slums. They invented child labor. They put Saddam Hussein in power. They burned Joan of Arc at the stake. They made Elton John a knight. We're talking about Britain, of course, and the terrible evils they've set loose on the world. In The Evil Empire, American author Steven Grasse documents the 101 worst atrocities perpetrated by Mother England-everything from foxhunting and the invention of the concentration camp to the rock band Oasis. (This spring, he's also launching a massive global Internet campaign for reparations worth $58 trillion.) With an irreverent mix of historical facts, smart-ass commentary, and red-blooded American arrogance, Grasse offers a devastating critique of the country that gave us the machine gun, factory labor, and Phil Collins. Publishing just in time for the Queen's birthday (April 21), The Evil Empire is essential reading for anglophiles and true-blue Americans everywhere.
