Overview

As stated in the Introduction, this book has been republished at least every 10 years since its first appearance in 1976. That pace has represented a sort of "watchful waiting," for this is a book of history, not current events, and it often takes a long time for tyrants to arise and seize power. It takes even longer for these perpetrators of misery and repression to arouse sufficient revulsion that their removal from prominence is undertaken, their punishment or demise assured, and their place in infamy recorded.
