Our homes are an extension of our personalities. Home is the place where we are truly ourselves and it reveals a great deal about what makes us tick. Peter York looks at how some of history’s most alarming men and women have chosen to decorate their homes; exploring the private tastes of these public figures in the broader context of twentieth century interiors and architecture. From Benito Mussolini’s inglenook fireplace to Hitler’s parquet floor; Saddam Hussein’s private artwork to General Noriega’s Christmas tree; he leaves no design detail unexamined. These buildings illustrate what happens when unrestricted imagination collides with unlimited power. Dictators’ Homes affords as great an insight into some of history’s most dangerous minds as any interview or archive.  Condition: very good.
