    Marcus Aurelius (121180 AD) is one of the great figures of antiquity whose life and words still speak to us today. His Meditations remains one of the most widely read books from the classical world, and his life represents the fulfillment of Plato?s famous dictum that mankind will prosper only when philosophers are rulers. Based on all available... more...

  • Crime and Punishment in Eighteenth Century Englandby Frank McLynn

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 150.00

    McLynn provides the first comprehensive view of crime and its consequences in the eighteenth century: why was England notorious for violence? Why did the death penalty prove no deterrent? Was it a crude means of redistributing wealth? more...

  • The Burma Campaignby Frank McLynn

    Random House 2011; US$ 20.78

    The Burma Campaign was one of the most punishing and protracted military adventures of World War Two. Impenetrable jungle, poor transport infrastructure, seasonal monsoon rains, as well as famine, disease, snakes and crocodiles all bore heavily on the troops. Against this extraordinary backdrop, Frank McLynn constructs the dramatic story... more...

  • Napoleonby Frank McLynn

    Random House 2011; US$ 30.38

    Napoleon Bonaparte's character and achievements have always divided critics and commentators.

Tracing Napoleon's extraordinary career, Mc Lynn examines... more...

  • 1066by Frank McLynn

    Random House 2011; US$ 27.18

    Everyone knows what William the Conqueror won the Battle of Hastings in 1066, but in recent years is has become customary to assume that the victory was virtually inevitable, given the alleged superiority of Norman military technology. In this new study, underpinned by biographical sketches of the great warriors who fought for the crown of England... more...

  • Villa And Zapataby Frank McLynn

    Random House 2011; US$ 27.18

    The Mexican Revolution (1910-19) was the first seismic social convulsion of the twentieth century, superseded in historical importance only by the Russian and Chinese revolutions.

  • The Road Not Takenby Frank McLynn

    Random House 2012; US$ 20.78

    Britain has not been successfully invaded since 1066; nor, in nearly 1,000 years has it known a true revolution ? one that brings radical, systemic and enduring change. The contrast with Britain?s European neighbours, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Greece, Russia, is dramatic ? all have been convulsed by external warfare, revolution and civil war... more...

  • Lionheart and Lacklandby Frank McLynn

    Random House 2012; US$ 17.58

    Anyone who has seen The Lion in Winter will remember the vicious, compelling world of the Plantagenets and readers of the romance of Robin Hood will be familiar with the typecasting of Good King Richard, defending Christendom in the Holy Land, and Bad King John who usurps the kingdom in his absence. But do these popular stereotypes correspond with... more...

  • 1759by Frank McLynn

    Random House 2011; US$ 17.58

    Although 1759 is not a date as well known in British history as 1215, 1588, or 1688, there is a strong case to be made that it is the most significant year since 1066. In 1759 - the fourth year of the Seven Years War - the British defeated the French in arduous campaigns on four continents and also achieved absolute mastery of the seas. ... more...
