by Peter Lloyd
‘Suffragent’ Peter Lloyd’s lad bible is the book that gives blokes their balls back. Calling for a new, improved approach to masculinity, Lloyd deftly navigates all of the burning questions that men face today, from whether we should fund the first date, to whether or not we are sexist if we enjoy pornography. Politically incorrect, fearless and hilarious in equal measure, Stand By Your Manhood is the essential guide to being a modern man.
by Lance Forman
In July 2005, the world held a collective intake of breath as the IOC president declared that London would be hosting the 2012 Olympic Games. For Lance Forman, the words spelt only dread as he and his 100-year-old, fourth-generation family business, H. Forman & Son, faced eviction to make way for the Olympic park. Forman’s Games is the full, unexpurgated and scandalous account of Lance’s battle to protect the firm, which brought him into open conflict with many powerful figures, including the then Mayor of London Ken Livingstone and Sebastian Coe.
by John McEntee
John McEntee’s career has been nothing if not colourful. After reporting on the IRA terror campaign for the Irish Press, John soon found his home on London’s gossip circuit, first on the Daily Mail’s Wicked Whispers column and later on the William Hickey column at the Daily Express.
Full to the brim with glamorous occasions, celebrity encounters and scandalous remarks, McEntee’s memoir is a goldmine of anecdotal gems from one of the true denizens of Fleet Street.
by Malcolm Rifkind
Sir Malcolm Rifkind has seen longer uninterrupted parliamentary service than anyone since Lord Palmerston in the early nineteenth century. Serving under Margaret Thatcher in the Foreign Office and the Ministry of Defence during some of the most turbulent years of the late twentieth century, Rifkind was in charge of British troops during the Bosnian conflict, helped change Polish history during the Cold War, and held secret negotiations on the Falklands with the Argentinians. For his robustness against the Kremlin’s aggression in Ukraine, he is currently banned from Russia by President Putin. Now, from the man himself, comes the inside story of all those affairs and more.
by Guy Standing
There is a lie at the heart of global capitalism. Income is channelled to the owners of property – financial, physical and intellectual – at the expense of society. This compelling book reveals how global capitalism is rigged in favour of rentiers to the detriment of all of us, especially the precariat.
