Buzz A superb natural and The Nature and Necessity of Bees cultural history of bees Thor Hanson – the only such book to celebrate their full diversity Bees are like oxygen: ubiquitous, essential, and, for the most part, unseen. While we might overlook them, they lie at the heart of relationships that bind the human and natural worlds. In Buzz, the award-winning author of Feathers and The Triumph of Seeds takes us on a journey that begins 125 million years ago, when a wasp first dared to feed pollen to its young. From honeybees and bumbles to lesser-known diggers, miners, leafcutters, and masons, bees have long been central to our harvests, our mythologies, and our very existence. They’ve given us sweetness and light, the beauty of flowers, and as much as a third of the foodstuffs we eat. And, alarmingly, they are at risk of disappearing. As informative and enchanting as the waggle dance of a honeybee, Buzz shows us why all bees are wonders to celebrate and protect. Read this book and you’ll never overlook them again.

THOR HANSON is a biologist whose research and conservation activities have taken him around the globe. His previous books include The Impenetrable Forest, Feathers (longlisted for the Samuel Johnson prize), and The Triumph of Seeds. He has appeared on BBC Radio 4 and contributed to publications including BBC Wildlife and the Huffington Post. He lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest, USA.

GIs and Germans join forces in a thrilling true adventure story from the last days of the Second World War

Ghost Riders Operation Cowboy, the World War Two Mission to Save the World’s Finest Horses

Mark Felton

April 1945. As Allied bombs rain down on Europe, a 400-year-old institution looks set to be wiped off the face of the Earth. The famous white Lipizzaner stallions of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, unique and precious animals representing centuries of careful breeding, are scattered across rural Austria and Czechoslovakia in areas soon to be swallowed up by Soviet forces – there, doubtless, to become rations for the Red Army. Their only hope lies with the Americans: what if a small, highly mobile US task force could be sent deep behind German lines, through fanatical SS troops, to rescue the horses before the Soviets arrive. Just five light tanks, a handful of armoured cars and jeeps, and 300 battle-weary GIs must plunge headlong into the unknown on a rescue mission that could change the course of European history. So begins Operation Cowboy, the greatest Second World War story that has never been fully told. GIs will join forces with surrendered German soldiers and liberated prisoners of war to save the world’s finest horses from fanatical SS and the ruthless Red Army in an extraordinary battle during the last few days of the war in Europe.

MARK FELTON is a well-known British historian whose numerous books and articles on military history have received international attention. His last book Castle of the Eagles (‘an extraordinary and largely forgotten wartime story, brought back to life in this Boys’ Own account’ – Daily Mail) has been optioned by Hollywood for movie development, as has his Zero Night (‘a thundering good read’ – History of War). After a decade working in Shanghai, Mark now lives in Norwich. 7

The emerging science of quantum economics can help us create a ‘real-world’ economics that actually works for us all

Quantum Economics The New Science of Money

David Orrell

A decade after the financial crisis, there is a growing consensus that economics has failed and needs to go back to the drawing board. David Orrell argues that it has been trying to solve the wrong problem all along. Economics sees itself as the science of scarcity. Instead, it should be the science of money (which plays a surprisingly small role in mainstream theory). And money is a substance that turns out to have a quantum nature of its own. Just as physicists learn about matter by studying the exchange of particles at the subatomic level, so economics should begin by analysing the nature of money-based transactions. Quantum Economics therefore starts with the meaning of the phrase ‘how much’ – or, to use the Latin word, quantum. From quantum physics to the dualistic properties of money, via the emerging areas of quantum finance and quantum cognition, this profoundly important book reveals that quantum economics is to neoclassical economics what quantum physics is to classical physics – a genuine turning point in our understanding.

DAVID ORRELL is a scientist and writer of books on science and economics. According to the Sunday Times ‘Orrell is an engaging and witty writer, adept at explaining often complicated theories in clear language.’ His latest books are The Money Formula: Dodgy Finance, Pseudo Science, and How Mathematicians Took Over the Markets, written with Paul Wilmott; and Economyths: 11 Ways Economics Gets It Wrong (Icon Books, 2017). 9

The riveting, poignant, star-studded and hilarious memoir of award-winning author Clancy Sigal’s time as a film agent on the make in Blacklist-era Hollywood

Black Sunset Hollywood Sex, Lies, Glamour, Betrayal and Raging Egos

Clancy Sigal

For me it begins in such an ordinary way ... with a gorilla, a blonde, and a gun ... Mid-20th century Hollywood; ‘Raymond Chandler’s LA before Pilates and cell phones’. Clancy Sigal (who would later be the inspiration for Doris Lessing’s ‘Saul Green’) is just back from fighting in the Second World War and an abortive solo attempt to assassinate Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg trials. Charming his way into a job as an agent with the Sam Jaffe agency, Sigal plunges into a chaotic Hollywood peopled by fast women, washed-up screenwriters, wily directors, and starstruck FBI agents trailing ‘subversives’, and every day is a caper. He parties with the likes of Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck, Tony Curtis and an anxious Peter Lorre, who becomes a drinking buddy. But this is the era of the Hollywood Blacklist and Sigal, like many of his contemporaries, is subpoenaed to testify before the HUAC. Will he give up the list of nine names, burning a hole in his pocket, to save his own skin? Hilarious, touching, intimate and revealing: Sigal’s memoir reads like a forgotten hardboiled detective novel and has all the makings of an instant classic. CLANCY SIGAL’S parents were both union organizers, and he was largely raised by his mother, Jennie. After a stint in the army Sigal was a union organiser in Detroit, then a talent agent in Hollywood. Escaping the McCarthyite witch-hunts, he emigrated to Great Britain, where he met and commenced a four-year affair with the writer Doris Lessing. He returned to the US, married, and with his wife co-wrote the oscar-winning 2002 Salma Hayek movie Frida. He died in 2017. 11

A case study of the biggest natural disasters humanity has survived, and how they have shaped our history

The Big Ones How Natural Disasters Have Shaped Us (and what we can do about them)

Lucy Jones

When the forces that give our planet life exceed our ability to withstand them, they become disasters. Together they have shaped our cities and architecture, elevated leaders and toppled governments, influenced the way we think, feel, fight, unite and pray. The history of natural disasters is a history of ourselves. The Big Ones investigates some of the most impactful natural disasters, and how their reverberations are still felt today. From a volcanic eruption in Pompeii challenging and reinforcing prevailing views of religion, through the California floods of 1862 and the limitations of memory, to what Hurricane Katrina and the 2004 tsunami can tell us about governance and globalisation. With temperatures rising around the world, natural disasters are striking with ever greater frequency. More than just history or science, The Big Ones is a call to action. Natural hazards are inevitable; human catastrophes are not. With this energising and richly-researched book, Jones offers a look at our past, readying us to face down the Big Ones in our future.

LUCY JONES is a world-renowned seismologist. A research associate at Caltech, she holds a PhD in geophysics from MIT. For decades, she has provided scientific information to the public, and has appeared on every major network’s Nightly News Broadcast as well as every major morning television show, Conan and Larry King Now, among others.

The Graphene Revolution Welcome to the The Weird Science of the Ultra-thin wonderful world of Brian Clegg graphene, the thinnest substance known to science In 2003, Russian physicists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov found a way to produce graphene – the thinnest substance in the world – by using sticky tape to separate an atom-thick layer from a block of graphite. Their efforts would win the 2010 Nobel Prize for Physics, and now the applications of graphene and other ‘two-dimensional’ substances form a worldwide industry. Graphene is far stronger than steel, a far better conductor than any metal, and able to act as a molecular sieve to purify water. Electronic components made from graphene are a fraction of the size of silicon microchips and can be both flexible and transparent, making it possible to build electronics into clothing, produce solar cells to fit any surface, or even create invisible temporary tattoos that monitor your health. Ultra-thin materials give us the next big step forward since the transistor revolutionised electronics. Get ready for the graphene revolution.

BRIAN CLEGG’S most recent books are The Reality Frame (Icon, 2017) and What Colour is the Sun? (Icon, 2016). His Dice World and A Brief History of Infinity were both longlisted for the Royal Society Prize for Science Books. He has also authored Big Data and Gravitational Waves for the Hot Science series, and has written for Nature, BBC Focus, Physics World, The Times and The Observer. 15

Renoir’s Dancer

The Secret Life of Suzanne Valadon

Catherine Hewitt In the 1880s, Suzanne Valadon was considered the Impressionists’ most beautiful model. But behind her captivating façade lay a closely-guarded secret. Born in poverty in rural France, as a teenager in Montmartre, Suzanne began posing for – and having affairs with – some of the age’s most renowned painters. Then Renoir caught her indulging in a passion she had been trying to conceal: the model was herself a talented artist. Rebellious and opinionated, she refused to be confined by tradition or gender, and some found her vibrant still lifes and frank portraits as shocking as her bohemian lifestyle. ‘A compelling book,’ (The Herald) Renoir’s Dancer tells the remarkable tale of an ambitious, headstrong woman fighting to find a professional voice in a male-dominated world.

From the author of The Mistress of Paris, a lavish biography of a remarkable 19thcentury woman

Catherine Hewitt appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour on publication of the hardback edition, and was featured in the Mail on Sunday and Choice magazine, among others.

American Politics A Graphic Guide

Laura Locker & Julia Scheele

How did a political outsider like Trump win the 2016 presidential election? Why do some Americans feel so strongly about gun rights? Is there a role for more than two political parties in the system? Following in the footsteps of the highly successful Queer: A Graphic History, illustrator Julia Scheele teams up with Dr Laura Locker in this introduction to the political history of the Land of Opportunity. Politics isn’t something that just occurs in the West Wing or the Capitol building – it comes from the interaction between state and society, the American people living their daily lives. In this unique graphic guide, we follow modern citizens as they explore everything from the United States’ political culture, the Constitution and the balance of power, to social movements, the role of the media, and tensions over race, immigration, and LGBT rights. Step right up, and see what lies beneath the pageantry and headlines of this great nation.

The extraordinary story of a slavegirl who rose from concubine to become the Ottoman Empire’s only queen

Empress of the East How a Slave Girl Became Queen of the Ottoman Empire

Leslie Peirce

Abducted by slave traders from her home in Ruthenia – modernday Ukraine – around 1515, Roxelana was brought to Istanbul and trained in the palace harem as a concubine for Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent, ruler of the Ottoman Empire and one of the world’s most powerful men. Suleyman became besotted with Roxelana and foreswore all other concubines, freeing and marrying her. The bold and canny Roxelana became a shrewd diplomat and philanthropist, helping Suleyman keep pace with a changing world in which women – Isabella of Hungary, Catherine de Medici – were increasingly close to power. Until now Roxelana has been seen by historians as a seductress who brought ruin to the empire, but in Empress of the East, acclaimed historian Leslie Peirce reveals with panache the compelling story of an elusive woman who transformed the Ottoman harem into an institution of imperial rule. ‘A riveting story of power, patronage and harem politics in sixteenth-century Istanbul’ Sarah Gristwood, author of Game of Queens

LESLIE PEIRCE was until recently Silver Professor of History, Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at NYU. She has also taught at Cornell and UC Berkeley. She earned her BA and MA from Harvard and received a PhD in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton University.

The true life story of Dudley Buck, an American Cold War hero whose pioneering work with computer chips placed him firmly in the sights of the KGB

The Cryotron Files How the Inventor of the Microchip Put Himself in the KGB’s Sights

Iain Dey and Douglas Buck

Dudley Buck was a brilliant scientist who developed or invented several early pieces of now-common technology (e.g. microchips, flash drives) in the 1950s. Like his Nobel-winning colleagues, he might have benefitted from them greatly, had he not died aged 32 of a mysterious heart attack, just after a high-profile group of Soviet scientists visited his lab on a Cold War-era tour of the USA. Buck was not the only scientist to expire that day – his colleague Dr Ridenour, chief scientist at Lockheed, also died of an unexplained heart attack. Both deaths are consistent with KGB contact-poison hits. Recently discovered papers reveal Buck’s extensive career in clandestine government work, that had led to his contact with Russia’s top computer scientists. His work was filed away and only rediscovered in the 1980s when it was used in research projects by NASA. A fascinating narrative history of Cold War-era computer and tech research, which combines social historical elements to produce a brilliant portrait of America in the mid-20th century. IAIN DEY is a Sunday Times correspondent who was named UK Business Journalist of the Year in 2010. This is his first full-length book. DOUGLAS BUCK is the son of Dudley Buck, and has had privileged access to his father’s diaries, associates and papers. Photo credit: Ray Wells/Sunday Times

Monuments Men-style true story of the men and women of France’s Musées Nationaux in the Second World War

Saving Mona Lisa The Battle to Protect the Louvre and its Treasures from the Nazis

Gerri Chanel

In August 1939, curators at the Louvre nestled the world’s most famous painting into a special red velvet-lined case and spirited her away to the Loire Valley. So began the biggest evacuation of art and antiquities in history. As the Germans neared Paris in 1940, the French raced to move the masterpieces still further south, then again and again during the war, crisscrossing the southwest of France. Throughout the German occupation, the museum staff fought to keep the priceless treasures out of the hands of Hitler and his henchmen, often risking their lives to protect the country’s artistic heritage. Thus a story that features as a vignette in the George Clooney film The Monuments Men is given the full-length treatment it demands. The recipient of several independent publishing awards in the United States, and illustrated throughout with nearly 100 photographs, Saving Mona Lisa is a compelling true story of art and beauty, intrigue and ingenuity, and remarkable moral courage in the darkest of times.

GERRI CHANEL is a prize-winning freelance journalist. She lived in France for five years, where she began the research for Saving Mona Lisa. She now divides her time between Paris and New York.

CERN and the Higgs boson hit the headlines and made particle physics exciting for nonscientists – here’s the inside story

CERN and the Higgs Boson The Global Quest for the Building Blocks of Reality

James Gillies

The Higgs boson is the rock star of fundamental particles, catapulting CERN, the laboratory where it was found, into the global spotlight. But what is it, why does it matter, and what exactly is CERN? In the late 1940s, a handful of visionaries were working to steer Europe towards a more peaceful future through science, and CERN, the European particle physics laboratory, was duly born. James Gillies tells the gripping story of particle physics, from the original atomists of ancient Greece, through the people who made the crucial breakthroughs, to CERN itself, one of the most ambitious scientific undertakings of our time, and its eventual confirmation of the Higgs boson. Weaving together the scientific and political stories of CERN’s development, the book reveals how particle physics has evolved from being the realm of solitary genius to a global field of human endeavour, with CERN’s Large Hadron Collider as its frontier research tool.

JAMES GILLIES is a member of the Strategic Planning and Evaluation unit at CERN. He was Head of the Organization’s communications group from 2003 to 2015, and is co-author of How the Web was Born, a history of the Internet published in 2000 and described by The Times as being among the year’s ten best books for inquisitive minds.

OCTOBER

Hitler’s British Traitors The first authoritative The Secret History of Spies, Saboteurs account of a well-kept and Fifth Columnists secret: the British Fifth Tim Tate Column and its activities during the Second World War Drawing on hundreds of declassified official files – many of them previously unpublished – Tim Tate uncovers the largely unknown history of more than 70 British traitors who were convicted, mostly in secret trials, of working to help Nazi Germany win the war, and several hundred British Fascists who were interned without trial on evidence that they were working on behalf of the enemy. Four were condemned to death; two were executed. This engrossing book reveals the extraordinary methods adopted by MI5 to uncover British traitors and their German spymasters, as well as two serious wartime plots by well-connected British fascists to mount a coup d’etat which would replace the government with an authoritarian pro-Nazi regime. The book also shows how archaic attitudes to social status and gender in Whitehall and the courts ensured that justice was neither fair nor equitable. Aristocratic British pro-Nazi sympathizers and collaborators were frequently protected while the less-privileged foot soldiers of the Fifth Column were interned, jailed or even executed for identical crimes.

TIM TATE is an award-winning documentary film-maker, investigative journalist and author of numerous books of non-fiction, including the best-selling Slave Girl (John Blake, 2009) and Hitler’s Forgotten Children (Elliott & Thompson, 2015) telling the story of the largely-secret Nazi Lebensborn programme through the life of one of its victims. He lives in Wiltshire.

Literary sleuth John Sutherland takes a quirky journey through the lesserknown byways of Mary Shelley’s masterpiece

Frankenstein’s Brain Puzzles and Conundrums in Mary Shelley’s Monstrous Masterpiece

John Sutherland

Where does Victor Frankenstein dig up his body parts? Is the monster a fan of Goethe? How does the monster die? On the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s perennially popular and influential gothic tale, literary detective John Sutherland turns his expert eye on Frankenstein and unearths a trove of tantalising facts and arcane puzzles. Among the topics to come under the microscope are: Does the monster have a penis? Is he a monster or a baby – or both? And, most important of all: who is the best on-screen Frankenmonster? Praise for John Sutherland’s Is Heathcliff a Murderer? ‘Enchanting … the most engagingly boffiny book imaginable.’ Spectator ‘Sutherland is not simply a sleuth, but a sympathetic alternative author: less a pedant, in fact, than a poet.’ Sunday Times

The Frighteners Why We Love Monsters, Ghosts, Death & Gore

Peter Laws The Frighteners follows the quest of Peter Laws, a Baptist minister with a penchant for the macabre, to understand why so many people love things that are spooky, morbid and downright repellent. He meets vampires, hunts werewolves, talks to a man who has slept on a mortuary slab, and is chased by a chainsaw-wielding maniac through a farmhouse full of hanging bodies.

A celebratory exploration of what our morbid tendencies can teach us

Staring into a Transylvanian night, he wonders what is it that makes people seek to be disgusted and freaked out? And, in a world that worships rationality and scapegoats violent video games and gruesome films, can an interest in horror culture actually give us safe ways to confront our mortality? Might it even have power to re-enchant our jaded world? Grab your crucifixes, pack the silver bullets, and join the Sinister Minister on his romp into our morbid curiosities.

B-format PBK PETER LAWS is an ordained Baptist minister and the author of crime fiction novels Purged and Unleashed (Allison & Busby, 2017). He writes a horror movie column for the Fortean Times and hosts the popular podcast/YouTube show The Flicks That Church Forgot, exploring the deeper themes of morbid culture.

Who is Dracula’s Father?

And Other Puzzles in Bram Stoker’s Gothic Masterpiece

John Sutherland When it was first published in 1897 – 120 years ago – Irish author Bram Stoker’s Dracula was ranked by the Daily Mail above work by Mary Shelley and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as Wuthering Heights. Yet it never made Stoker any money. Since 1931’s film Nosferatu the Vampire, however, it has never been out of print and is legendary among fans of the dark, macabre and mysterious … Critic John Sutherland, a Dracula fan since childhood – and author of the literary puzzle classics Is Heathcliff a Murderer? and Can Jane Eyre be Happy? explores the enigmas and puzzles of this towering giant of gothic novels, such as: Who was Dracula’s father? Why does the Count come to England? Does the Count actually give Jonathan a ‘love bite’? Why does every country we know of have a vampire legend? And finally – how long is it before we’re all vampires?

Acclaimed critic John Sutherland gets his teeth into the literary puzzles of the greatestever Gothic novel

The lavishly produced definitive account of Leeds United’s first century

100 Years of Leeds United 1919–2019

Daniel Chapman

100 Years of Leeds United tells the story of a one-club city and its tumultuous relationship with its football team. Since its foundation in 1919, Leeds United Football Club has seen more ups and downs than most, rising to global fame through an inimitable and uncompromising style in the 70s, clinching the last Division One title of the pre-Sky Sports era in 1992, before becoming the epitome of financial mismanagement at the start of the 21st century. Despite this demise, United remains one of the best supported – and most divisive – clubs in football, with supporters’ clubs dotted across the globe. In 100 Years of Leeds United, Chapman delves deep into the archives to discover the lesser-known episodes, providing fresh context to the folkloric tales that have shaped the club we know today, painting the definitive picture of the West Yorkshire giants. Published to coincide with the club’s centenary celebrations.

DANIEL CHAPMAN has been the editor of Leeds United fanzine The Square Ball since 2011. During that time, The Square Ball has been shortlisted for the Football Supporters’ Federation Fanzine of the Year award six times, winning on two occasions.

Also important is Saussure’s argument that meanings are determined by difference: no sign has meaning apart from its differential relationship to other signs. For example, the signifier “cat” signifies the mental concept of a four-legged, furry animal because the signifier cat is not equivalent with the signifiers bat or mat, etc., rather than because the word “cat” contains any essential or inherent dimension of cattiness. As for the signifier “bat”, is it a piece of sporting equipment or an animal?
