Editorial Review:
Synopsis "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."-George Santayana, philosopher and writer History is a catalogue of errors, and History's Worst Decisions shines a light on fifty of the biggest. Starting with Adam and Eve's original blunder in eating the apple, author Stephen Weir takes you on a tour of catastrophes from antiquity to modern times. From the Trojan War to Gallipoli, from the Boston Tea Party to the Enron scandal, famous figures of ancient times such as Cleopatra and Nero rub shoulders with more modern culprits like Churchill and Mugabe. History's Worst Decisions doesn't just point the finger at individuals, the actions of governments and corporations are also scrutinized. While the motivations - often sinister, sometimes naïve - that led those responsible to commit their mistakes are unveiled, as is the lasting impact that their decisions have had on the world that we live in today. Biography A graduate of Cambridge University, Stephen Weir is a writer and publisher who has worked on three continents. He has worked with authors as diverse as the Australian novelist Patrick White, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature, the noted British military historian John Keegan, and the billionaire George Soros.
