What happens when a dictator rises to power in a democracy? Plutarch gives us the answer, over and over, from ancient Greece and Rome. The answer is terrifying. This book used to be included in a basic education, and it should be again.

"A beautiful family saga that stretches from World War I to the late 20th century. The writing is lovely. Mr. Campbell's descriptions draw you directly into the scene. It's a great history of an aristocratic family in a turbulent century. "
Walk to Paradise Garden by John B.  Campbell
