How To Stop Brexit (And Make Britain Great Again)

Paperback
by Clegg, Nick
Keep calm - but do not carry on. There is nothing remotely inevitable about Brexit - except that it will be deeply damaging if it happens.

A History of the World in Twelve Maps

Paperback
by Jerry Brotton
Throughout history, maps have been fundamental in shaping our view of the world, and our place in it. But far from being purely scientific objects, maps of the world are unavoidably ideological and subjective, intimately bound up with the systems of power and authority of particular times and places. Mapmakers do not simply represent the world, they construct it out of the ideas of their age.
