Description
In the beginning there was blame: Adam blamed Eve, Eve said it was the serpent, and we've been hard at it ever since. We may have come a long way from the days when a goat was saddled with all the iniquities of Israel and driven into the wilderness, but is our modern need to absolve ourselves really any more advanced? Charlie Campbell highlights all those others who have found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, illustrating how God needs the Devil, as surely as James Bond needs Blofeld. Moving from the Bible to the British royal family, from medieval witch burning to reality TV, this is a timely look at social history that uncovers stories of obsession, mania, persecution, and injustice from the highest echelons of society to the lowliest outcast.
