Tag: Best Sellers

In the same way that the Economist magazine argues that the Big Mac Index is a 'good' measure of the relative strength of currencies one can argue that best seller lists capture the concerns and interests of a culture.

The Crisis open wikipedia on the title 
Winston Churchill open wikipedia on the author (1871 - 1947) 

Publishers Weekly #1 Best Seller for 1901.

It is important to note that the author is not the famed English politician and author, but an unrelated American writer.

The novel tells an epic tale of the American Civil War and remained in print until well into the 1970s.

The author wrote of the book that "The breach that threatened our country's existence is healed now. There is no side but Abraham Lincoln's side. And this side, with all reverence and patriotism, the author has tried to take. Yet Abraham Lincoln loved the South as well as the North."

1897 Best Seller 
Quo Vadis open wikipedia on the title 
Henryk Sienkiewicz open wikipedia on the author (1846 - 1916) 

Sienkiewicz received the 1905 Nobel Price in Literature for his "outstanding merits as an epic writer".

The novel follows the developing love between a Christian woman and a Roman Patrician in the time of Nero. The romantic story arc is set against the conflict of the moral systems of the long established Roman Empire and the developing Christianity. Sienkiewicz uses this setting to explore morality and power, and his observations remain relevant today.

The novel is based on extensive historical research and gives a good view of life in those times.
