Čo sme robili v posteli. Horizontálna história


Nazrite pod perinu fascinujúcich dejín postele

V tejto pútavej knihe sa Brian Fagan a Nadia Durrani venujú nekonečne rozmanitej úlohe postele v dejinách ľudstva. Posteľ bola miestom, kde sa nielen spalo, ale aj umieralo, milovalo, rodilo, rozprávali sa príbehy a konali spoločenské aktivity. Kto robil čo, s kým, prečo a ako sa v závislosti od doby a miesta neuveriteľne líšilo.

Ľudovít XIV. vládol Francúzsku z postele. Winston Churchill riadil počas druhej svetovej Britániu z tej svojej. Pocestní si bežne líhali spať s úplne cudzími ľuďmi a v mnohých domácnostiach sa o postele delili celé rodiny. Postele boli drahocenné a často boli vystavované na obdiv Tutanchamóna pochovali na zlatej posteli a bohatí Gréci odchádzali do podsvetia na honosných ležadlách.

Posteľ sa na súkromné, skryté miesto zmenila až v modernej dobe a na jej bohatú spoločenskú históriu sa do veľkej miery zabudlo.

Ak ste si mysleli, že posteľ slúži iba na spánok, sex alebo smrť, táto kniha vás presvedčí o opaku. A navyše je taká zábavná, že ju budete čítať dlho do noci. Paul Chrystal, autor kníh In Bed with the Ancient Greeks a In Bed with the Romans

Je to fascinujúci príbeh predmetu, ktorému sme doteraz nevenovali takú pozornosť, akú by si zaslúžil. Chris Scarre, Durham University

Táto úžasná kniha o našom najobľúbenejšom kuse nábytku je skvelým rozprávaním na dobrú noc. Matthew Symonds, editor časopisu Current World Archaeology
