Description
Illustrated with a series of boldly colored pop-art portraits by Steve Krakow, this book from the author of Poets Ranked by Beard Weight offers a lively catalogue of 53 notoriously heavy-handed rulers. Along with the usual suspects—Hitler, Stalin, Genghis Khan, Ivan the Terrible, Vlad the Impaler—we meet the likes of Emperor Nero of Rome, who reportedly made Christians into human torches and tried four different ways to kill off his mother. Here too are dictators Alfredo Stroessner, who offered comfortable refuge to former Nazis and made it legal to hunt Indians in Paraguay, and Uganda's Idi Amin, who dumped torture victims into the Nile to be eaten by crocodiles.

"An improbably fun compendium of the world's worst."—NY Daily News
