Humbug: The Art of P. T. Barnum
University of Chicago Press, 15/05/1981 - 337 páginas
This carefully researched study of America's greatest showman, huckster, and impresario is both an inclusive analysis of the historical and cultural forces that were the conditions of P. T. Barnum's success, and, as befits its subject, a richly entertaining presentation of the outrageous man and his exploits.
