 About the Book 

This study of ethics & what shapes them argues that morality is as subject to fashion & the whims of the rich & powerful as any other aspect of human life. Examining the relationship between what a society believes & how it behaves,MoreThis study of ethics & what shapes them argues that morality is as subject to fashion & the whims of the rich & powerful as any other aspect of human life. Examining the relationship between what a society believes & how it behaves, the author touches upon the infamous careers of Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, Caligula, the early Popes, the Marquis de Sade, King Henry VIII, Adolf Hitler, & Idi Amin, among many others. This compelling study finds a link between the Victorians disdain for communal swimming & the stoning of grey-haired Zulu kings- and a common thread in the Inquisition, the Holocaust, & the mass suicides at Jonestown.
