Mistresses : A History of the Other Woman draws intimate portraits of mistresses throughout history, from Chinese concubines to Europe's royal mistresses and the clandestine consorts of (un)celibate clerics. Mobster molls, trophy dolls and modern mistresses are deconstructed, with often surprising results. Beyond the personalities, some interesting themes emerge: the relationship between mistresses of colour and their married men; the coercion of Jewish women during the Holocaust; and a contemporary look at today's power mistresses.
