Two Assassinations

History nowadays is written with a view to popular sales, just as it was in Macaulay’s day. This does not mean that historians are any less rigorous in their scholarship, but the pressure to sell has led to the development of a number of best-selling works. This section invites you to look at two examples of this phenomenon. They both deal with political assassination, though in different countries and very different periods of European history.
