He knows much more about economic history than I do, so I can only defer to his deep knowledge.

Let me oversimplify the paper by baldly stating its hypothesis. Then I will make a couple of remarks about the findings. What type of file do you want? RIS. BibTeX. What do you want to download? Citation only.

I bought this book after a friend who shares my love of history recommended it to me. It's fantastic. I love how the scandals in the 80s and 90s take me back to when these were headlines. It's interesting to see how passing time has transformed our perception of some of these events. The writing style is informal and funny while not being condescending. You really learn about how all these events actually still impact us today. I also found myself discovering scandals that I had never heard of (like Stanford White) and learned that there has been many a "Trial of the Century" besides OJ. I think this would be a great book for parents to get for their teens who love history or anyone who loves a good scandal. Also (and I mean this in the best possible way) is a fantastic bathroom read as you can read a few scandals at a time. Great book!

This is a great little book, conversation starter. I purchased this book primarily because my children had become interested in the OJ Simpson case but this book is so much more. Very interesting and enlightening. I would recommend it for quick history lessons on the cases it covers. They are small chapters but puts forth a lot of information.

I bought this as part of a book package for a neice of mine. I had to give it a skim to make sure it was appropriate for a 12-13year old, but ended up reading the entire book and fully enjoying it. Yes, the book describes SCANDALS that invovlved questionable characters, and indeed some of the content gets intense, but it is not only delivered in a digestible way (that is remarkably fun, btw), but the book provides other content to further stimulate thought/conversation on these topics, or at least give a different focus or perspective for each scandal. It's life, too, and life involves a decent scandal every once in a while - hopefully none like these for any of my neices though!

I was in my teens during a bunch of the scandals of the ninties that are sketched, and I must also say that Scandalous! helped me make sense of the events after the fact.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it for anyone old enough to watch afternoon and evening television - it's certainly time better spent!

Great summer book full of interesting tidbits. Not sure how much truth is in it, but fun to read.
  • MOQ
The book is well researched and the variety of scandals discussed intriguingly broad, covering celebrities, crime, politics, and culture. The format and length of each scandal make it very easy for anyone to find something new and interesting just by flipping through. Some of the scandals touch on pretty heavy subjects, too, but are handled rather well. It's obviously targeted at a younger crowd, and while not really educational in a textbook sense, it may go a long way to pique the interests of history-minded teenager.
  • Doomwarden
This is an entertaining and more or less informative book. The layout is fantastic for reluctant teen readers as it closely resembles a magazine. You get quite a variety of information here as well - everything from pop culture scandals to murders to politics. Some of the information is the same that I learned in high school history courses but it's presented in a much more entertaining way. Loved how easy it was to navigate from one event to another and I thought it was absolutely fantastic that everything was presented chronologically. My only gripe with this book is that the author does get a few facts wrong. Given how rich this book is with information, however, the very few cases of misinformation really aren't all that important; it does separate me from giving this book five stars, however, and is important to note for any teens using this book to present facts. Wish it was better edited in this sense, but still thoroughly enjoyable.

This book has intrigue, deception, fallen heroes, and secrets revealed. There are 50 shocking events you should know about.

Inside the book each event has A Picture, The Scoop, What Went Down, The Players, Quotable, The Aftermath, Why We Still Care, More.

I want to give you one that I found interesting, Bad Boy Rock Star Jerry Lee Lewis Marries His Underage Cousin (1958).

The Scoop!
Jerry Lee Lewis was one of the hottest rock 'n' roll stars in the 1950's, but when English tabloids found out he married his 13-year-old cousin, his rep quickly went down the tubes.

Quotable
"I can assure you that my wife is all woman, even through she looks kinda young."
Jerry Lee Lewis trying to convince the crowd of reporters at Heathrow Airport in 1958 that Myra was old enough to be his wife.

Why We Still Care
The scandal shined a spotlight on underage marriage. Age-of-consent laws for marriage vary from state to state, and in the 1950's it was perfectly legal to get married at 13 in some states. Today, both people must be at least 18 or get the permission of a parent or judge in most US states. Though Lewis and Myra's marriage didn't directly change any laws, it brought attention to the issue of underage marriage.
People still wonder if we missed out on some great music. Even through many thought it was gross that Lewis married his 13-year-old cousin, his fans-and music critics-have often stated that the world of music suffered by shutting Lewis down right when he was really starting to cook.

Whether you are a teen or an adult - it is really a great book and I highly recommend it. I was given this book from Zest Books [...]
