Description Extraordinary True Stories of History's Greatest Hoaxes, Fakes and Frauds
Description A Treasury of Deception: Liars, Misleaders, Hoodwinkers, and the Extraordinary True Stories of History's Greatest Hoaxes, Fakes and Frauds
We may say that honesty is the best policy, but history - to say nothing of business, politics, and the media-suggests otherwise. In this infinitely citable book, the author of two bestselling treasuries of scandal recounts some of the greatest deceptions of all time. With what forged document did the Vatican lay claim to much of Europe? Who wrote Hitler's diaries? Why do millions still believe the vague doggerel that Nostradamus passed off as prophecy? Organizing his material by theme (con artists, the press, military trickery, scientific fraud, imposters, great escapes, and more), Michael Farquhar takes in everything from the hoodwinking of Hitler to Vincent 'the Chin' Gigante's thirty-year crazy act. 'A Treasury of Deception' is a zestful, gossipy exposé - and celebration-of mendacity.
