If you look at history through Emily Hahn’s jaundiced eyes, you’ll realize that romance just ain’t what romantics crack it up to be. Using such notorious affairs as those of Caesar and Cleopatra or Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, Hahn reminds us that love is far less of a factor in the fates of nations than greed, wrath, and some of humanity’s other, less attractive character traits. Love doesn’t conquer all; it just screws a lot of things up.
