Product Description

<p><b>Taking readers on a global journey through human history, Natasha Tidd examines how lies can change the world around us, from Julius Caesar’s deceptive PR machine to the cover-ups that caused Chernobyl.</b><br><br>From <b>forgeries</b> that created centuries worth of conflict and domination, such as The Donation of Constantine, the Protocols of Zion and the mysterious Testament of Peter the Great, to mass <b>political</b> and <b>press cover-ups</b> including Britain’s Boer War concentration camps, a Pulitzer Prize-winning whitewash of the Ukraine Famine and the infamous Dreyfus Affair in France.<br><br>Alongside these are examinations of how our <b>retellings</b> of history can <b>turn</b> <b>fiction into fact</b>, including The Spanish Inquisition’s deceitful legacy. Plus, there is an in-depth look at how historic lies can still impact our lives today, such as the <b>deadly legacy</b> of America’s Tuskegee Experiment.<br><br>Meet incredible people, including Jeanne de Clisson who became the fourteenth century's most feared pirate – all because of a lie.<br><br><i>A Short History of the World in 50 Lies</i> details the profound impact of this secretive side of history and shows that the truth really is stranger – and far more dangerous – than any fiction.</p>
