50 People Who Messed up the World [9781472143013]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Who would top your list of the 50 people who have done the most to make the modern world a worse place?

From despotic mass-murderers to sports cheats, and from corrupt politicians to truly dreadful celebrities, who has had the most damaging - or vexatious - impact in their particular sphere of modern life?

This line-up of the very worst of the twentieth century and beyond includes the obvious candidates: those who have caused extraordinary damage through their murderous paranoia, brutal avarice, or demented self-regard - Stalin, King Leopold, Idi Amin and the like.

But murderous dictators aside, there are plenty of others who deserve recognition for their role in making the world a significantly more dangerous or, at the very least, more annoying place: terrorist Carlos the Jackal; Robert Oppenheimer, the man who gave the world the atomic bomb; notorious sports cheat Lance Armstrong; and the one and only President Donald Trump, who has of course succeeded in making the world both more annoying and more dangerous.

This perfectly focused spotlight on infamy is illustrated throughout by the razor-sharp wit of award-winning political cartoonist Zapiro.
