Great Feuds in History Summary


Great Feuds in History: Ten of the Liveliest Disputes Ever by Colin Evans

"Everyone loves a good fight, especially on the world stage, and Evans calls these contests with skill and flair."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review) The dramatic stories of ten high-stakes feuds that changed history forever In this spicy follow-up to the successful Great Feuds in Science and Great Feuds in Medicine, author Colin Evans offers blow-by-blow accounts of ten of the nastiest and most consequential feuds in history, from Elizabeth I's lengthy spat with royal pain Mary, Queen of Scots, to Aaron Burr's bloody battle with Alexander Hamilton, to Stalin and Trotsky's ferocious, intercontinental set-to. Detailing the historical context as well as the dramatic human stories behind these struggles, Great Feuds in History presents both famous disputes, such as the storied backwoods war waged by the Hatfields and McCoys, and lesser-known cases, such as the equally monumental feud between Generals Montgomery and Patton. Colin Evans (Pembs, UK) is the author of the Casebook of Forensic Detection (Wiley: 0-471-28369-X), and a forthcoming book on forensic controversies.
