Dictators' Homes

Author(s): Peter York

Non Fiction

Our homes are an extension of our personalities. Home is the place where we are truly ourselves and it reveals a great deal about what makes us tick. Peter York looks at how some of history's most alarming men and women have chosen to decorate their homes; exploring the private tastes of these public figures in the broader context of twentieth century interiors and architecture. From Benito Mussolini's inglenook fireplace to Hitler's parquet floor; Saddam Hussein's private artwork to General Noriega's Christmas tree; no design detail is left unexamined. These buildings illustrate what happens when unrestricted imagination collides with unlimited power. Dictators' Homes affords a greater insight into some of history's most dangerous minds than any interview or archive.
