Who was the evilest of the evil, the baddest of the bad? For armies of armchair thrill seekers and shudder hounds everywhere, The Evil 100 presents a cold, heartless ranking of the world's 100 most malevolent people, past and present. Including well-known figures from Stalin to Jack the Ripper to Bin Laden, obscure characters like King Astyges, who punished a servant by feeding the man his own son, and evil organisations such as the Klu Klux Klan. This makes for more than a simple catalogue of atrocities, it is a serious examination of the darker side to human nature.
