Christmas at Hatchards: World History

Collateral Damage: Britain, America and Europe in the Age of Trump

Kim Darroch

£20

To be British Ambassador to the United States gives you both front-seat view and behind-the-scene access – and Kim Darroch’s Collateral Damage is ripe with revelatory anecdotes and unvarnished insights from the ‘special relationship’. But how do you explain Brexit to the Americans and Trump to the British?

 

Blood and Oil: Mohammed bin Salman’s Ruthless Quest for Global Power

Bradley Hope and Justin Scheck

£20

It’s an outrageous story of breath-taking deals across the world, the accumulation of unimaginable wealth, and allegations of brutality and corruption. Interviews with Middle East insiders flesh out a picture of the Crown Prince and his kingdom in ways that contrast dramatically with images of social progress and political reform.

 

Prisoners of History

Keith Lowe

£20

At the end of World War II, monuments were erected across the world in remembrance. But why is Russia still building such monuments? Why does a statue of a young girl in Seoul create controversy? Lowe questions national memory, history and war commemoration  in this fascinating account.
