A scarily funny compendium of the modern world's most despicable villains, packed with hilarious illustrations from award-winning cartoonist Zapiro.
From drug lords, drug cheats and the morally corrupt to political despots and plain, old crackpots - the twentieth century certainly saw its fair share of villains. Be it through politics, war, sport, culture or just their general idiocy, these are men and women of infamy who have steered our good ship Humanity towards the World-War-fighting, smart-phone-tapping age we are mired in today.
