about this item

Based on the success of the best-selling Plunges into History, Uncle John goes back in time to bring fans more compelling, confounding, and fascinating peeks into the world's past. International in scope, you'll read about historical events, people, and places worldwide. As always, the slant will be on revealing what they didn't teach you in history class--history unexpunged!

Once again we’re plunging into history's archives to bring you scintillating sagas of rogues and rascals, diplomacy and disaster, popes and peasants, nices and vices, defeats and victories, royalty and rabble, feuds and famine, battles and breakthroughs, crime and punishment, secrets and scandals, cultural milestones and historical millstones.
The Bathroom Reader's Hysterical Society takes another dive into history, focusing on those details that are left out of most textbooks and lessons, including chapters titled "Dictators and Their Offspring" and "Horses in History," as well as tidbits about battles, famines, scandals, and indiscretions that are often left out of the official history. Original.
