  1. 1066 and All That

    1066 and All That

    W. C. Sellar and R. J. Yeatman

    Illustrated by John Reynolds

    £24.95

    With only two genuine dates, this irreverent romp is history as every schoolboy would wish it – hilarious and memorable.

  2. Big Chief Elizabeth

    Greed, romance and desperation abound in Giles Milton’s exploration of the colonial enterprise that paved the way to the United States of America. At the book’s heart lies the vanishing of the 1587 settlement on Roanoke Island, whose 115 inhabitants met with a grisly end.

  3. The Age of Gold

    Utilising the stories of the men and women caught up in a period of extraordinary change, H. W. Brands has created an epic portrait of the Gold Rush, illustrated in this edition with rare contemporary photography.

  4. Stasiland

    Stasiland

    Anna Funder

    £36.95

    Blending investigative journalism with the personal approach of a writer both fascinated and appalled by her subject, this is an award-winning portrait of life under ‘one of the most savage surveillance regimes ever known’. With previously unpublished photographs by the author.
