From the Punic Wars between Rome and Carthage to the cataclysmic events of World War II, Atrocitology spans centuries and civilisations as it measures the hundred most violent episodes in history.

Our understanding of human atrocities is patchy and skewed. This book sets the record straight, charting the events with the largest man-made death tolls without fear or favour.

'Thorough, unbiased, sophisticated, rigorous, authoritative, and, I hasten to add, tremendously entertaining.' Steven Pinker
