The killing of holders of high office for a predetermined political or ideological purpose is a practice as old as power politics itself. Assassinated! tells the darkly sensational story of twenty centuries of political murder, from the Roman era to the present. It includes accounts of many of the most infamous assassinations in history, from the slaying of Julius Caesar in 44 BC to the shooting of President Kennedy in 1963. Drawing on the latest research, Dr Steven Parissien presents a richly entertaining sequence of case-studies of this, the ultimate method of regime change.
