  zeitgeist. Child kidnaps for 1920s; serial killing for 1980s; terrorism for
  2000s

Book of the Day

[10]Edward Heath

      10. http://thebrowser.com/recommended/edward-heath-by-philip-ziegler

  But there was another side to him that doesn’t usually come out and I think
  Philip has brought that out quite successfully.
