Overview

In The Evil Empire, Steven A. Grasse exposes the secret history of England’s global misdeeds. He asks what few have dared to ask: Having spent the better half of the millennium turning the world into their personal litter box, where do the English get off blaming everything on America?
 
After all, whose imperialistic shenanigans is Osama bin Laden really trying to avenge? Whose landgrabbing ways put the Palestinians and Israelis at each others’ throats? Who invented machine guns, wage slavery, and concentration camps?
 
The closer you look at English­­ history, the more you realize they’re in no position to be pointing fingers. This outrageous indictment is sure to make blue bloods boil on both sides of the Atlantic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In this cheeky look at the low points of the U.K. past and present, adman Grasse…doesn't just twist the Royal Lion's tail, he nearly yanks it off.... Though tempered with plenty of humor, this intense diatribe is sure to rankle Anglos and their fans; as such, it will make a perfect gag gift…”—Publishers Weekly

The Evil Empire is sure to change hands as a novel office gift.”—Advertising Age
