Vice And Virtue: Men of History -- Great Crooks For The Greater Good

前表紙
Algora Publishing, 2000 - 208 ページ
Many are they who, in the course of history, have placed their own passions before the public interest. But what has been the result? From the courtesans of Versailles to the back halls of Chirac government, from Danton -- revealed to have been a paid agent for England -- to the shady bankers of Mitterand's era, from the buddies of Mazarin to the builders of the Panama Canal, Paul Lombard unearths the secrets of the corridors of power. He reveals the vanity and the corruption, but also the grandeur and panache that characterize the great. This cavalcade over many centuries can be read as a subversive tract on how to lead.

8 ページ - There are two sorts of corruptions— one when the people do not observe the laws; the other when they are corrupted by the laws: an incurable evil, because it is in the very remedy itself.
