Lords of Creation: The Demented World of Men in Power (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Margaret Cook had first-hand experience of how power affects a man's behaviour - specifically sexual behaviour - when her high-profile husband, then Foreign Secretary, left her publicly for his secretary. In this controversial book, she explores the remarkable stereotypical behavioural patterns of men (and women) who get in to power: egocentrism, autocracy and potentially tyranny. The behaviour of a broad spectrum of men is scrutinised here - including Oliver Cromwell, Pope Alexander VI, Napoleon, William Gladstone, Benjamin Disraeli, Abraham Lincoln, Josif Stalin, Mao Zedong, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Richard Nixon, the Kennedys, Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. The author then goes on to discuss how much of this behaviour is inherited and how much is a consequence of nurture. This controversial book uncovers fascinating and sometimes shocking truths about the nature of power, sexuality and government.

Margaret Cook was born in Pretoria, South Africa. She was educated in England and studied medicine at Edinburgh University. She was, until recently, Consultant Haematologist at St John's Hospital, Livingston, and Honorary Senior Lecturer in the faculty of medicine at Edinburgh University. Margaret's first book, her ironically titled memoirs, 'A Slight and Delicate Creature', spurred her interest in writing. She has regular agony aunt and moral muse columns in the 'Woman's Journal' and 'Observer Review' respectively and is often called upon to comment on social issues. Margaret lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.
