2006, ISBN: 0060838353

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 982315842

[EAN: 9780060838355], Gebraucht, guter Zustand, [PU: HarperCollinsPublishers, New York], COLLECTIBLE, Biography & Autobiography|Historical, Jacket, 175 pp., illus., biblio., index; 22 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First Edition." Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. A fine copy of the first printing. "The assassination of Prince William of Orange by a French Catholic in 1584 had immediate political consequences and a profound effect on the course of history. It was a serious setback for Protestants in the Netherlands, who were struggling for independence from the Catholic rule of the Hapsburg Empire. But the crime's ramifications were even more earth-shattering, for it heralded the arrival of a new threat to the safety of world leaders and the security of nations: a pistol that could easily be concealed on one's person and employed to lethal effect at point-blank range. In this provocative, fascinating, and enormously engaging work, noted author and historian Lisa Jardine brilliantly recounts the brazen act of religious terrorism that changed everything - and explores its long and bloody legacy, from the murder of Abraham Lincoln in 1865 to the slaying of Archduke Ferdinand in 1914, to the plague of terror and violent zealotry that infects our world today. / Lisa Jardine is the author of biographies of Robert Hooke and Christopher Wren. She is Professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary, University of London, and is also an honorary fellow of King's College, Cambridge. She lives in London, England." - Publisher.

[EAN: 9780060838355], Fine, [PU: HarperCollins], Hardback. In this innovative work of history the author shows how the first killing by handgun of a head of state had a profound effect on the course of history. The shooting of Prince William of Orange by a French Catholic in 1584 had immediate political consequences: it was a serious setback for the Protestant cause in the Netherlands, as its forces fought for independence from the Catholic rule of the Hapsburg Empire. But, as the author demonstrates, its implications for those in positions of power were even more far-reaching, as the assassination heralded the arrival of a lethal new threat to the security of nations - a pistol that could be concealed on one's person and used to deadly means at point-blank range. Queen Elizabeth I, Williams's close Protestant ally, was devasted by his death and, as the object of assassination plots herself, was thrown into panic. The English parliament soon enacted legislation making it an offence to bring a pistol anywhere near a royal palace. Elizabeth's terror was not misplaced. As the author observes, William's assassination was the first in a long and bloody line that would include the murders of President Lincoln in 1865 and Archduke Ferdinand in 1914 - a terror that is all too relevant today. Illus., Appendices, Notes, Further Reading and Index. 175pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. With small black 'remainder' mk. to lower edge, o/w Nr. F. in f. dw.
