Brewers Rogues, Villains, & Eccentrics: An A-Z of Roguish Britons Through the Ages

“A quirky reference treasure...this low-priced text will enhance any public or high-school library shelf and supply a bored library worker with stolen moments of delight.”—BooklistPresenting the Hall of Shame! Both entertaining and indiscreet, this dictionary of callous cads introduces a host of wildly colorful characters. Here are assassins and arsonists, hangmen and horse thieves, hell-raisers and highwaymen, not to mention an array of poisoners, quacks, and forgers. Meet Ronald Biggs, one of the participants of the Great Train Robbery, and Julie Amiri, a thief who found being detained by policemen...very exciting. There’s enough degradation, depravity, and dottiness to delight anyone.
