Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439968038, Hardcover)

History with the nasty bits left in| The Mad Miscellany serves up all the dreadful details of horrible history you'll ever need to know - from rotten Roman graffiti to terrible teacher tortures and rude royal nicknames, the foul facts are all inside. Want to know: the crushing details about execution by elephant? how to soften your skin Georgian-style - using the skins of puppies? who's idea of a top treat was mashed deer tongues? Whether you're desperate to discover which famous rulers were left-handed, raring to read about the top ten dogs of all time, or just aching to ask about assassinating apes, then this book is for you. History has never been so horrible!

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:58:29 -0400)

A potted history of some of the more bizzare things from the past.
