Atlas of Prejudice II gives an unusual view on unless trivial questions like the Spanish Reconquista and it’s incestuous but God-fearing masterminds Isabella and Ferdinand, the transatlantic journeys of a prejudiced xenophobe called Christopher Columbus, the passion for absurd hats of an Ottoman sultan, the love intrigue among Charlemagne and Pope Leo III, and the exploration of America by Vikings.
You will also discover out that noblemen, like Alexander the Great, only do mistakes when they listen to women; what’s the distinction between the author’s grandmother and Amelia Earhart; how many corpses did Europeans eat through the Renaissance; and why unicorns, who love the company of virgins, got vanished in the early 17th Century, never to be seen again.
In the times when it doesn’t reinvent history, the Atlas offers a stomach-cramping map of terrible European food, a guide for tearing apart the Old Continent, a prediction about the result of the coming Blitzjihad, and a world map according to Facebook users.
