Details

This unique collection of scandalous activities and pursuits provides a historic reference to the dark and endlessly fascinating side of American history. Covering people and events—shameful or otherwise—from the 1630s to the present, The New Encyclopedia of American Scandal fills an important historical niche, tackling lurid subject matter without itself being sensational. Updated throughout, the book offers more than 450 A-to-Z entries on such topics as dirty politics, white-collar scams, botched cover-ups, tawdry love affairs, and despicable acts of corruption. Entries include figures and events from politics, sports, business, religion, the arts, high society, and the military, including the Mayflower Madam, Patty Hearst, Warren G. Harding, the Kennedy men, the Kent State Shootings, and Watergate.

Entries include:
  • Aldrich Ames
  • BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International)
  • Bergman-Rossellini Affair
  • Burr's Conspiracy
  • The Erik and Lyle Menendez Trial
  • The Fisher-Buttafuoco Affair
  • Emma Goldman
  • Mezzei Letter
  • The murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and the O. J. Simpson trial
  • Salt Lake City's Olympic Bribery Scandal
