And that, as they say, is that. After months of back and forth, of deliberations and heated debates, we are now due for our first December election since 1923. Out with Brexit, and in with by-elections- at least for the time being.

However, the outcome of this election has never looked less certain. Brexit will dominate the next month as it has the past few years, and the end result is just as likely to be a landslide election for the Conservative Party as it is for the Liberal Democrats. What to do? How to prepare?

Fortunately, we are a political publishing company, and so we have access to a great back catalogue of election-themed books. If you’re looking for some pointers on how some of the best analytical minds think the votes might stack up, or if you’re looking to learn from the lessons of Theresa May’s ill-fated 2017 Election, then you’ve come to the right place.

For the next two weeks, all of the books below will cost only £5 each- and if you order more than £20, you’ll get free postage.
