Dictators' Homes : Lifestyles of the World's Most Colourful Despots Paperback
by Peter York
If our homes are an extension of our personalities then the interiors in "Dictators' Homes" provide evidence to substantiate the theory that these men and women were the world's most terrifying rulers.
Featuring rare, jaw-dropping photographs of interiors that are now mostly (thankfully) destroyed, Peter York places each lair in its historical context leaving no tiger pelt unturned.
From Saddam Hussein's private artwork and General Noriega's Christmas tree to the alarming tube and knob contraption in Ceausescu's en-suite bathroom no design detail is unexamined.
The worlds' most famous Dictators are here. From Mussolini and Mobutu via Idi Amin, Lenin and Tito, this book ensures that Dictators' crimes against good taste will no longer go unpunished.
