Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
The villains of the piece are small group of bankers and industrialist. These oligarchs have explicated their country during the past years on an almost incredible scale. (Th. Dreiser, “America in Worth Saving”)
the villain of the piece = someone or something that is responsible for something bad or wrong; the root of the evil
Thank you for your efforts.
