We also have Politics, But Better, by social commentator Tatton Spiller and Reboot, exploring the overwhelming challenges and opportunities we face when interacting with new technologies. In our nature writing list, which includes James Aldred’s Wainwright winner Goshawk Summer, we have The Language of Trees, an outstanding collection edited by Katie Holten, and a new anthology by Waterstones Book of the Month author Nancy Campbell – Nature Tales for Winter Nights

Road to Surrender

Evan Thomas

A riveting, immersive account of the agonizing decision to use nuclear weapons against Japan in World War II

Three men were intimately involved with America’s decision to drop the atomic bomb – and Japan’s decision to surrender: Henry Stimson, the American Secretary of War; General Carl “Tooey” Spaatz, head of strategic bombing in the Pacific; and Japanese Foreign Minister Shigenori Togo, the only one in Emperor Hirohito’s Supreme War Council who believed even before the bombs were dropped that Japan should surrender.

This suspenseful, impeccably researched history draws on new access to the diaries of Stimson, Togo and Spaatz to tell their stories, bringing these critical events to vivid life while contemplating the immense weight of their historic decision.

‘An indispensable portrait of power, anxiety, and moral ambiguity.’ Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of And There Was Light

The Language of Trees

The Language of Trees is a beautifully illustrated love letter to trees, filled with prose, poetry and art from over fifty collaborators, including Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert Macfarlane, Zadie Smith, Radiohead, Elizabeth Kolbert, Amitav Ghosh, Richard Powers, Suzanne Simard, Gaia Vince, Tacita Dean, Plato and Robin Wall Kimmerer.

In this deeply thoughtful collection, artist Katie Holten gifts readers her visual Tree Alphabet and uses it to masterfully translate and illuminate these pieces from some of the world’s most exciting writers and artists, activists and ecologists.

Holten guides us on a journey from prehistoric cave paintings and creation myths to the death of a 3,500-year-old cypress tree, from Tree Clocks in Mongolia and forest fragments in the Amazon to the language of fossil poetry. In doing so, she unearths a new way of seeing the natural beauty that surrounds us and creates an urgent reminder of what could happen if we allow it to slip away.

Reboot

Elaine Kasket

Technology is the mediator and middleman in nearly every relationship we have in modern life: parents and kids, teachers and pupils, romantic partners, employees and bosses, midlife adults and ageing parents, we are constantly making decisions about data and devices that affect not only us, but other people.

In Reboot, psychologist Elaine Kasket disrupts common assumptions and fears about technology’s impact on us. For each phase of your life, she explores how and why you may be pulled into using and thinking about technology in particular ways, even when those ways don’t ultimately serve you or your relationships.

Come away curious about why you use technology the way you do; clear about how those choices are really working out; and with the tools to align your technology use with the kind of life and relationships you want. When you recognise and reclaim the extent of your power, what might become possible?

Politics, But Better

Tatton Spiller

An A–Z guide to rediscovering the heart of our democracy and making the world a better place

Strikes across the country. A prime minister resigning after just forty-four days. Accusations of bullying in the House of Commons. Our politics and our democracy appear to be fundamentally broken. But that doesn’t mean that all hope is lost.

Politics, But Better will look at the very fabric of our system and what improvements can be made. Exploring 26 issues in UK politics, from A to Z –including censorship, elections, insults and u-turns –it clearly lays out the problems and challenges we face, and puts forward possible solutions. Looking at a variety of ideas and real-world examples, it will encourage us to rethink the fundamental ways we do things, to question the status quo, and to chart a path towards a more hopeful future.

Respect and understanding are at the heart of this book, promoting open debate, tolerance and compassion as the cornerstones of a reformed political landscape. Politics is about improving the world – and we can do better.

Luck of the Draw

Frank Murphy

The epic true story of an American hero who flew during the Second World War – soon to be a major TV series

On 17 August 1942, American heavy bomber crews of the Eighth Air Force took off for combat in the hostile skies over occupied Europe. The final price was staggering. 4,300 B-17s and B-24s failed to return, nearly 21,000 men were taken prisoner or interned in a neutral country, and a further 17,650 made the ultimate sacrifice.

Luck of the Draw is more than a war story. It’s the incredible, inspiring story of Frank Murphy, one of the few survivors from the 100th Bombardment Group, who cheated death for months in a German POW camp after being shot out of his B-17 Flying Fortress.

‘In the pursuit of authenticity, of accurate history and undeniable courage, no words matter more than, ‘I was there.’ Read Luck of the Draw and the life of Frank Murphy and ponder this: how did those boys do such things?’

A River Runs Through Me

Andrew Douglas-Home

An evocative account of salmon fishing, family, tradition, conservation and the Scottish countryside

Against the shifting moods and seasons of Scotland’s River Tweed, A River Runs Through Me tells the story of a lifelong relationship with one of its most iconic denizens: the Atlantic salmon. Through vivid vignettes and family memories, Andrew Douglas-Home spins a homely yet dryly witty narrative, placing this unique fish and river at its heart.

Woven into the decades, amid youthful adventure and memorable catches, are stories too of one of Scotland’s oldest families – tales of politics, friendship and stewardship of the natural world. This poignant and thoughtful book looks back at age-old practices and traditions but also forward to what we must do to secure the future of the Atlantic salmon and their rivers.

And Then What?

Catherine Ashton

A behind-the-scenes account of global crises from Libya to Iran, revealing how modern-day diplomacy really works

So much of modern-day diplomacy still takes place behind closed doors, away from cameras and prying eyes. So what does this vital role really look like in today’s world?

From 2009 to 2014, Catherine Ashton was the EU’s first High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security. Arriving in Brussels with no significant experience of international diplomacy, she faced the challenge of representing the views and values of twenty-eight nations during one of the most turbulent times in living memory. From Russia’s invasion of Crimea to the Iran nuclear deal, she led the EU’s response, charting a path towards collaboration and stability.

Now for the first time, Ashton takes us behind the scenes to show us what worked and what didn’t, and how it felt to play a part in tackling some of the major international crises of our times.

She is a life peer and former Leader of the House of Lords and served as a UK government minister in the Education and Justice departments.

Why Is This a Question?

A fascinating exploration of the nuts and bolts of human language

Why don’t eleven and twelve end in –teen? The rest of our counting system sits in neatly arithmetical sets of ten, so why do these two rulebreakers seem so at odds with the numbers that follow?

Admittedly, that question might never have occurred to you. But if you’re even remotely interested in the origins and oddities of language, you’re probably now intrigued to know the answer. Nor is it the only question that might now spring to mind. Why do these letters look the way they do? Why are some uppercase and others lowercase? Why are these words in this order? How are you understanding what these seemingly arbitrary shapes and symbols mean? And what even is a question anyway?

Why Is This a Question? is a fascinating and enlightening exploration of linguistic questions you’ve likely never thought to ask.

The Future of Geography

Space: the biggest geopolitical story of the twenty-first century

Spy satellites orbiting the moon. Space metals worth billions. People on Mars within our lifetime. This isn’t science fiction. It’s astropolitics. We’re entering a new space race – and it could revolutionise life on Earth.

Space is already central to our economies, communication, military strategy and international relations on Earth. Now, it is the latest arena for human exploration, exploitation – and, possibly, conquest. We’re heading up and out, and we’re taking our power struggles with us, with China, the USA and Russia leading the way.

With all the insight and wit that have made Tim Marshall the UK’s most popular writer on geopolitics, this gripping book shows how we got here and where we’re going, covering greatpower rivalry; technology; commerce; combat in space; and what it all means for us down here on Earth. This is essential reading on power, politics and the future of humanity.
