“Clearly young people are hungry for a different kind of politics, one that feels more authentic – and not because it is marketed that way, but because it actually is.” Exclusive to Waterstones, the movement-defining voice of Naomi Klein delivers her analysis of June’s General Election, just as her latest title No is Not Enough: Defeating the New Shock Politics is published in the UK. Like her eternal No Logo, No Is Not Enough is a whip-smart assessment of the status quo and a polemic for seismic change.
'The events of Trump’s presidency are tethered to the past. Chomsky is there, crooking his finger: Go back. Follow the path.' A founding father of analytic philosophy and a titan of contemporary political debate, Noam Chomsky has been crucial in shaping a generation’s thinking. To mark the paperback release of Who Rules the World?, Chomsky’s definitive guide to the origins of power, Craig Taylor, author of Londoners, delves into Chomsky’s backlist to find an author who remains angrily determined in the pursuit of truth.
'There’s always a story behind a colour, even if sometimes its veracity is lost in the mists of time.' Undoubtedly one of Waterstones' standout non-fiction titles of 2016, Tim Marshall's Prisoners of Geography quickly established itself as one of our most enduringly popular Non-Fiction Book of the Month choices, turning a legion of readers from a techno-centric view of history to a topographical one and redefining contemporary geopolitical thinking through an engaging survey of ten maps of the world. Now, in his latest book, Worth Dying For, he turns his attention to history's most tangible and politically divisive totem: the flag. Here, exclusively for Waterstones, he considers the significance behind the symbol.
