There is a bit of a sudden edit as we pick up part 2 of the History of Dictators.
We have more on Napoleon. We briefly discuss some famous historical dictators, including Pol Pot from Cambodia. We look at some people who could have been dictators but weren’t.
Books we read:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Otto)
The Oxford Dictionary of English
Tyrants – History’s 100 Most Evil Despots and Dictators by Nigel Cawthorne
Podcasts we listened to:
The History of Rome (more…)
In Our Time: Julius Caesar
Films we watched:
The Hunger Games (both of us). They are great and explore very interesting historical and political themes.
Websites we visited:
