This issue introduces readers to some of history’s greatest villains, from Herod the Great, Biblical despot who built a powerful kingdom but murdered his wife, children and rivals, to Blackbeard, 18th-century pirate whose ruthless actions terrorized the American coastline. Lighter figures are also featured, including George Parker, who repeatedly sold the Brooklyn Bridge, Butch Cassidy, who robbed trains and banks with few casualties, and Elmry de Hory, perhaps the most successful art forger ever to have lived. The final section of the issue reviews the latest history books, apps, and exhibitions on tour.

                The articles that were in there were interesting, but there were only four actual articles of any length. It was good, but I was expecting more.

                    It's nice to read about the rogues of history and to get a bit of perspective on them. Sometimes the myths take over and a reality check is a good thing. Could have had more detail, but it's a short book.
