A must-have guide to the scandalous behavior of politicians around the world. Andy Hughes's fascinating book guides us through centuries of political abuse—and just plain stupidity. This pocket guide exposes the secret side of politics, including politicians who risked or ruined their own careers for personal gain. Stories include the MP who liked to party hard and be whipped even harder; the prime minister and his hookers; expenses claims for manure; and the US president who called for all gay men to be castrated. Politicians have mixed scandal with eggs, adult movies, helicopters, drugs, shoes, beef burgers, public toilets, mobile phones, rape, turkeys, orgies, and even ice cream. And it's not just today's politicians who are embroiled with scandal. This explosive book reveals the questionable behavior of politicians of yesteryear from around the world.
