Bad Girls and Wicked Women by Jan Stradling

Breathtakingly shocking, at times inspiring and always riveting, these stories take the reader into the lives and times of 22 of history's most ruthless, ambitious women. Sassy, brilliant, vicious, cunning, unstable, tough-as-nails - they are products of their times, women who defied mainstream boundaries and ethics.

Each gripping story speaks for itself: from Queen Mary I who did 'what it took' to protect Catholicism in England, to Madame Mao who became one of Communist China's most powerful and feared leaders, to Georgia Tann who, as a director of the Tennessee Children's Home, made millions selling babies on the black market. Some of these anti-heroines were cruel, others visionary, yet others blinded by ambition or love. All were driven by a powerful combination of primal forces.
