The investigative journalist and author of The Last Man in Russia and Let Our Fame be Great, Oliver Bullough, takes us on a journey into the universe of the lawless, stateless superrich, where third-world kleptocrats rub shoulders with terror financiers, captains of industry and western heads of state. From the ruins of Kiev to the Bond-villain lairs of Knightsbridge and Central Park, something has gone wrong with the system of the world. Learn how the institutions of the United States and Europe have become money-laundering operations, climbing over one another in a scramble to sell off the foundations of their own stability. Discover the true cost of being open for business, no matter the customer. Meet the dictators. Meet their awful children. And find out how activists around the world are fighting to put the genie of unlimited power plus zero responsibility back in its bottle. Oliver Bullough pieces together some of the biggest news stories of the past years, from the Panama and Paradise Papers to Ukraine, Trump, and runaway inequality, into a single coherent diagnosis. Take a walk on the walk on the dark side of globalisation and the all-pervasive organised crime that reaches from Russia to the banks and parliaments of the world, and to every personal computer networked to the web.
By August 1918 the outcome of the Great War was not in doubt. But the fear was that the Germans might hold on into 1919 with the loss of thousands more young lives. Peter Hart brings to life those dramatic final weeks, as men fought to secure victory, with survival seemingly only days, or hours away. Peter Hart is oral historian at the Imperial War Museum, and author of the critically acclaimed?Gallipoli?and?The Great War. In this centenary year of the Armistice he brings us the voices of those who fought that 'last battle' and achieved an end to the war.
A candid memoir by the son of Jonathan Miller about growing up amidst some of the most brilliant intellectuals of a generation... In the 60s, 70s and 80s the Miller family's doors were always open for their well-known, idealistic and intellectual friends. Their guests included Alan Bennett, the Mellys, Oliver Sachs, Nigella Lawson, Martin Amis: extraordinary people in extraordinary times. William Miller has captured the ups and downs of his childhood as well as chronicling a range of funny and sometimes heart-breaking events as he struggled to find his own identity in a house filled with so many others - some of the most challenging minds of our times
