Titans of History

Published by Quercus on 14th September 2017

Simon Sebag Montefiore, one of our pre-eminent historians, presents the lives of the giants who have made our world. The cast varies from conquerors, poets, kings, empresses and whores to psychopaths, composers and explorers.

Informative, entertaining, inspiring and sometimes horrifying, this is a history of the world that contains the stories and characters that everyone should know and no one should forget.

Originally published in 2007, Quercus issued the new edition Titans of History in 2017.
