A journalist raps on the big bad guys and really bad ideas of history. Few are spared and none 'forgiven'. An entertaining and quick visit to the complex grounds of morality, social behaviors, religion, and the inexplicably unpleasantness that beset humankind.

This book edges up to being too clever in places with analysis and the writer throws around a lot of concepts that deserve more expansion for this topic to be well covered.

'EVIL' is a fair introduction to the topic, certainly with the twist that this author adds.
