What constituted a secret or a scandal in times gone by? This entertaining history gives an overview of the times and attitudes to "secrets," and what was meant by a "scandal." The series uncovers revelations of infidelity, murder, poisonings and corruption. In the context of Victorian propriety the tales in this book are even more startling, detailing scandalous celebrities and poor "unfortunates." From those upstairs and down, to those dwelling in the slums, they all sampled the same pleasures and sometimes met the same ghastly fate, and the new defamatory popular press gleefully printed the most lurid tales.
Brian Williams is the author of Tudor Secrets & Scandals and Medieval Secrets & Scandals.
