Description

With each new generation we all tend to think of our predecessors as 'old-fashioned', 'conservative', 'prim', 'proper' - and downright dull. The sexual revolution happened in the 1960s, right? Wrong. History's Naughty Bits is full of incredible stories that would curl the hair of the most liberal-minded and sets the record straight with true stories of debauchery and titillation from Ancient history to the twentieth century. In it, you'll find a huge range of well-known figures, from the Borgias to various kings and queens, Popes and priests, Presidents and Prime Ministers, doctors, lawyers, saints and philosophers. Quite frankly, they were all 'at it' in one way or another, and have been since time immemorial. Fascinating, funny and mind-blowing in turn, this enlightening book will turn your preconceived view of history on its head . . . if that's your thing . . . Karen Dolby is a freelance editor and writer. Among her books are History's Naughty Bits, Oranges and Lemons: Rhymes from Past Times and Homework Help for Mums and Dads, all published by Michael O'Mara Books. She lives and writes in south London.
