    ABSURDISTAN
    The highs and lows of being a reporter in some of the strangest, most dysfunctional places on Earth. Award-winning foreign correspondent Eric Campbell has been stoned by fundamentalists, captured by US Special Forces, arrested in Serbia and threatened with expulsion from China. He's negotiated dating rituals in Moscow, shared a house with a charismatic mercenary in Kabul and taken up smoking at gunpoint in Kosovo. In 2003 in Iraq he was injured in a suicide bombing which killed his colleague, cameraman Paul Moran. By turns provocative and thoughtful, ABSURDISTAN is a memoir about juggling life, love and fatherhood while reporting from some of the most dysfunctional places on Earth.

  • ADULTS IN ROOM            MY BATTLE WITH EUROPES DEEP ESTABLISHMENT
    ADULTS IN ROOM MY BATTLE WITH EUROPES DEEP ESTABLISHMENT
    "This is the explosive, secret account from the world's most controversial economist of what happened when he took on Europe's entire economic establishment. When the Eurozone collapsed in 2010, Greece faced a 300 billion euro black hole- the largest debt in history. In response, the EU imposed yet more loans on Greece under conditions of crushing austerity, money that flowed straight back to commercial banks in Frankfurt whose greed had caused the crisis. In 2015, their country ravaged by the cuts, the Greek people elected a new government with a mandate to reject the so-called bail-out. The man charged with making their case in Europe was Yanis Varoufakis. What ensued was one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in financial history, ending ultimately in Varoufakis's resignation. But no one actually knows what went on during those negotiations because Eurogroup discussions are held in secret. In this explosive account, Varoufakis reveals all- an extraordinary tale of brinkmanship and backstabbing that exposes the shocking reality of how power is wielded behind the scenes at the EU. It is a document that will shake the economic establishment to its foundations."

  • AN AMERICAN STORY  SPEECHES OF OBAMA  A PRIMER
    AN AMERICAN STORY SPEECHES OF OBAMA A PRIMER
    Barack Obama, junior senator from Illinois, first captured Americas attention with his keynote address to the Democratic National Convention in 2004. Now, as near-Democratic candidate for President, Obamas superb and captivating oratory style has earned him comparisons to John F. Kennedy and even Martin Luther King and on the campaign trail Obama has achieved near rock-star status. Obama speaks on themes of race, identity, community, and above all, his hoped-for vision of a New America. His legions of supporters gravitate towards his unblemished idealism. Still, as David Olive writes, even the most ardent supporters of Barack Obama ... might wonder at times if the mesmerizing orator is more style than substance. Here, interspersed with the entire text of Obamas key speeches, Olive explores the controversies: Obama shedding his American flag lapel pin, Reverend Wright, his antiwar stance, his strong Christian faith, and his often racially charged remarks and the victories: passage for more than 280 bills in his last two years in the Illinois state senate, his actions towards social justice, and his remarkable rise from underdog to potential future president of the United States.

    AND THE WEAK SUFFER WHAT THEY MUST EUROPE AUSTERITY THREAT TO GLOBAL STABILITY
    "The crisis in Europe is not over, it's getting worse. In this dramatic narrative of Europe's economic rise and spectacular fall, Yanis Varoufakis, former finance minister of Greece, the emerging rock star of Europe's anti-austerity uprising' (Telegraph), shows that the origins of the collapse go far deeper than our leaders are prepared to admit u and that we have done nothing so far to fix them. In 2008, the universe of Western finance outgrew planet Earth. When Wall Street imploded, a death embrace between insolvent banks and bankrupt states consumed Europe. Half a dozen national economies imploded and several more came close. But the storm is far from overa From the aftermath of the Second World War to the present, Varoufakis recounts how the eurozone emerged not as route to shared prosperity but as a pyramid scheme of debt with countries such as Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain at its bottom. Its woeful design ensured that collapse would be inevitable and catastrophic. But since the hurricane landed Europe's leaders have chosen a cocktail of more debt and harsh austerity rather than reform, ensuring that the weakest citizens of the weakest nations pay the p

  • ANOTHER DAY IN  DEATH OF AMERICA    B FORMAT
    ANOTHER DAY IN DEATH OF AMERICA B FORMAT
    Saturday, November 23rd, 2013. It was just another day in America; an unremarkable Saturday on which ten children and teens were killed by gunfire. The youngest was nine; the oldest was nineteen. White, Black and Latino, they fell in suburbs, hamlets and ghettos. None made the national news. There was no outrage about their passing. It was just another day in the death of America, where on a daily average - seven children and teens are killed by guns.

    Younge picked this day at random, searched for their families and tells their stories. The nine-year-old opened the door and was shot in the head by his mother's ex-boyfriend. The eleven-year-old was killed by his friend at a sleepover in rural Michigan. The eighteen-year-old gang member, on Chicago's South Side, was shot in a stairwell just days after being released from prison. Through ten moving chapters - one for each child - Younge explores the way these children lived and lost their short lives. He finds out who they were, who they wanted to be, the environments they inhabited, and what this might tell us about society at large. What emerges is a searing portrait of childhood and youth in contemporary America.

  • ARAB SPRING
    ARAB SPRING
    What is the Arab Spring? How did it start? How might it end? What role did Wikileaks play? And where do events leave the oil-dependent west? As American and British jets shower bombs on Libya it is astonishing to think that it all began with a young man who ran a fruit stall. Angry at police brutality, 26-year-old Mohamed Bouazizi, who sold fruit and vegetables streetside in a provincial Tunisian town, set himself on fire in protest at police behaviour. His act of defiance, in the middle of December 2010, sparked a chain of rebellion in Tunisia, which drove the country's dictator from power. That mood spread to Egypt, where an extraordinary standoff between protesters and the longtime autocrat Mubarak gripped the world. And then Libya. The UN declared a no-fly zone, paving the way for a US-led bombardment of Libya u and a global debate, in some quarters uproar, at the sight of another western intervention. Libya's fate is unknown u as to a large extent is Egypt's. Meanwhile the region remains in the balance. In Bahrain, in Yemen, in Syria and beyond, there have been burst of insurgency. Across the wider Middle East, opposition movements are emboldened. Told with the energy and drama of an unfolding story, together with the analysis, argument, insight and eloquence of the Guardian's best writers and contributors, Arab Spring will make compelling reading for anyone who cares about democracy and the future of the new world order.
