Description
History may be written by the winners, but historically, the winners haven't always been the best historians. Fortunately, David Haviland is one of the best historians—or at the very least, one of the most diligent and also entertaining ones. Here he sets the record straight on Lady Godiva, history's most famous nude equestrian (How naked was she, really? And how did this same legend give rise to the term Peeping Tom?). Among dozens of other figures and events are the Boston Tea Party (if you think it was caused by a rise in taxes, you're totally wrong), the start of World War I (was it a lost chauffeur who made Archduke Ferdinand a target for assassination?), and the not-so-prudish sex life of that notable prude Queen Victoria.
