Great Events from History: Modern Scandals is an entirely new reference set on a subject that has never been covered as broadly and thoroughly in any other reference publication.This three-volume set describes & analyzes 400 of the most important and most publicized scandals in all fields of human endeavor that have occurred throughout the world since the beginning of the 20th century. Each essay focuses on a single event, or series of closely related events, that has been perceived as a scandal. A wide variety of topics appear here, including scandals that rocked the worlds of banking and finance, education, government and politics, health and medicine, publishing and journalism, and sports and entertainment. Topics include such widely know scandals as the Teapot Dome scandal, 1919 "Black Sox" World Series, Watergate, the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior, the death of Princess Diana, Enron, the Tour de France doping scandal, and the 2007 subprime mortgage industry collapse.
