1 Calder, Angus Gods, Mongrels, and Demons: 101 Brief but Essential Lives
1582344310 / 9781582344317; This book is an idiosyncratic and indespensable guide to history's most - and least - memorable characters. Inspired by the author's believe that "oddballs, headbangers, saints, nutters, philosophers, freaks and such like deserve to be drawn away from the periphery to the center of our consciousness. " Gods, Mongrels and Demons uses the famous, the infamous and the apparently marginal to tell us more about ourselves and our cultures than we'd find in the usual history book fare. With this book, Angus Calder has created an original, eccentric and richly entertaining work of reference for readers of all stripes. 438 pages including an index. The book is arranged alphabetically by name and has more information than one would expect on most entries. The jacket is worn at the corners and has minor bends at the spine ends. There is one 1/4" tear at the top right corner. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
