Item # 9781426221460
product description History is filled with struggle and triumph, determination and discovery, courage and revolution--and let's face it, some really bad days. Featuring tales of bad romance, failed business deals, presidential missteps, royal sabotage, tragic loss, and missed opportunities, More Bad Days in History by Michael Farquhar tells the unfortunate--but often comical--tales of days gone horribly wrong from ancient history to the modern day. With a red-letter event for every day of the year--from January 2, 1492, when the sultan of Granada was relieved of his kingdom by Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain, to February 18, 1900, when heroin was first prescribed by doctors to cure the common cough--you'll find yourself amused, intrigued, and sometimes horrified by day after day of hilarious misfortune.
