Well known psychologist Dr Richard Ryder has profiled the personalities of twenty celebrities of the past, laying bare their true motives and revealing some of the real reasons for great historic events such as Wellingtonís victory at Waterloo, Hitlerís launching of the secondWorldWar, the publication of Sigmund Freudís theories, Nelsonís victory at Trafalgar, and Alan Turingís cracking of the Enigma Codes.

He also analyses the sex lives of great novelists like Charles Dickens and Daphne du Maurier, and raises questions about the family background of Winston Churchill.

Here are 20 pioneering psychobiographies, each of which casts new light on its subjects, and provides original challenges for the historian and general reader.

Imprint: Ryelands. ISBN 978 1 906551 42 1, hardback, 234x156mm, 264 pages. Published October 2015.

The Calcrafts of Rempstone HallThe Calcrafts of Rempstone Hall - £14.99
This work, by Richard Ryder, is a book on many levels. It is full of light-hearted incident and period colour. It is also a biography of a family covering some 250 years. At one level it is a book about sex, murder, mystery and black magic. At another, it is about the serious business of national politics and war. But it is also about the everyday lives of a dynasty of Dorset squires, their loves, hopes and fears, and their roles in the complexities of the British class system.
