GUY GAUNT’s infiltration of America’s leadership changed the course of history. When the Great War began he was the British naval attaché in Washington, beached for recklessness at sea. Taking over a network of disaffected immigrants he thwarted all efforts by the powerful German-American establishment in the United States to stop America from supporting the Allies. The exposure of a sinister German underground showed President Woodrow Wilson that America could not remain neutral. The Foreign Office never forgave him for outclassing its fledgling Secret Service. Toughened by early life in the turbulent Australian goldfields, Guy built a career by playing outside the rules. He dodged his way up the ranks of the Royal Navy, married for money, snatched up a country estate, won a seat in Parliament and faked his disappearance to run off with the wife of the King’s doctor. He was active again in World War II—new life, new wife—but the Whitehall mandarins took a cruel revenge.

The ancient Greeks and Romans considered it degrading to both parties yet depicted it prolifically in art and literature. The Early Christian Church called it "the worst evil," punishable by seven years of penance and fasting (murder was one year). Nearly all of the 13 original American colonies had laws against it--except Georgia. A Victorian handbook for young brides advised how to "dampen his desire to kiss in forbidden territory." Attitudes about oral sex have varied through the centuries and across cultures--a death sentence in some nations, a religious practice in others. This book explores its history as well as its impact on world events.

In 1975, a Labor government with a wafer-thin majority was struggling in vain against rampant inflation. Trade union officials seemed more powerful than the politicians who had been elected through the democratic process, while Londoners considered themselves to be on the front line of a terrorist campaign which originated in Northern Ireland. Behind all this lay a fear of a devastating nuclear war that could break out at any time whether or not a majority of British people agreed with the cause of conflict. More than 30 years later, it is easy to see why commentators thought that Britain was becoming "ungovernable” in the mid-1970s. Yet evidence suggests that the British people were happier in those days than they have been in the early years of the 21st century, as well as much more inclined to cast votes in general elections. During the 1980s Britain was certainly affected by the "Thatcherite,” consumerist ethos. But on closer inspection, it turns out that Britons are just as "angry” today as they were in 1975, if not more so. In this groundbreaking book, Mark Garnett charts the changes in British politics, society, and culture since 1975. This volume breaks with the traditional approach to history by addressing the reaction to change through themes like lust, greed, fear, and charity, while at the same time retaining a sense of chronological progression.
Newspaper and magazine gossip is a potent and sulphurous brew - much derided and much devoured - that long ago became part of the daily diet of millions. The raw ingredients are scandal, rumour, glamour and scurrility, and the best is shot through with (preferably illicit) sex, disclosure and danger. How and why has this happened, and where will this obsession lead us?
