NETWORKS, HIERARCHIES AND THE STRUGGLE FOR GLOBAL POWER
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0032

Most history is about the people at the top of the towers of power. But what if the real action is in the social networks down below, in the town squares? Niall Ferguson, the international bestselling author of Empire, The Ascent of Money and Civilization, brilliantly recasts past and present as an unending contest between hierarchies and networks.

WHAT ANCIENT PHILOSOPHERS TEACH US ABOUT HOW TO LIVE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0052

A deeply comforting and enlightening book on how Stoicism can inspire us to lead more enjoyable lives. What aspects of your life do you really control? What do you do when you cannot guarantee that things will turn out in your favour? And what can Stoicism teach us about how to live together? In the past few years, Stoicism has been making a comeback. But what exactly did the Stoics believe? In Lessons in Stoicism, philosopher John Sellars weaves together the key ideas of the three great Roman Stoics - Seneca, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius...

(H/B) THE FIFTH RISK
UNDOING DEMOCRACY
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0054

The morning after Trump was elected president, the people who ran the US Department of Energy - an agency that deals with some of the most powerful risks facing humanity - waited to welcome the incoming administration's transition team. Nobody appeared. Across the US government, the same thing happened: nothing. People don't notice when stuff goes right. That is the stuff government does. It manages everything that underpins our lives from funding free school meals, to policing rogue nuclear activity, to predicting extreme weather events. ...

The routine traffic stop that ends in tragedy. The spy who spends years undetected at the highest levels of the Pentagon. The false conviction of Amanda Knox.

(H/B) WARHOL
A LIFE AS ART
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0057

When critics attacked Andy Warhol's Marilyn paintings as shallow, the Pop artist was happy to present himself as shallower still: He claimed that he silkscreened to avoid the hard work of painting, although he was actually a meticulous workaholic; in interviews he presented himself as a silly na?f when in private he was the canniest of sophisticates. Blake Gopnik's definitive biography digs deep into the contradictions and radical genius that led Andy Warhol to revolutionise our cultural world. Based on years of archival research and on in...

(H/B) GREECE
BIOGRAPHY OF A MODERN NATION
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0048

We think we know ancient Greece, the civilisation that shares the same name and gave us just about everything that defines 'western' culture today, in the arts, sciences, social sciences and politics. Yet, as Greece has been brought under repeated scrutiny during the financial crises that have convulsed the country since 2010, worldwide coverage has revealed just how poorly we grasp the modern nation. This book sets out to understand the modern Greeks on their own terms. How did Greece come to be so powerfully attached to the legacy of the...

Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE

(H/B) THE FORTRESS
THE GREAT SIEGE OF PRZEMYSL
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0055

From the prize-winning author of Ring of Steel, a gripping history of the First World War's longest and most terrible siege. In the autumn of 1914 Europe was at war. The battling powers had already suffered casualties on a scale previously unimaginable. On both the Western and Eastern fronts elaborate war plans lay in ruins and had been discarded in favour of desperate improvisation. In the West this resulted in the remorseless world of the trenches; in the East all eyes were focused on the old, beleaguered Austro-Hungarian fortress of Prz...

(H/B) NOVACENE
THE COMING AGE OF HYPERINTELLIGENCE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0051

James Lovelock, creator of the Gaia hypothesis and the greatest environmental thinker of our time, has produced an astounding new theory about future of life on Earth. He argues that the anthropocene - the age in which humans acquired planetary-scale technologies - is, after 300 years, coming to an end. A new age - the novacene - has already begun. New beings will emerge from existing artificial intelligence systems. They will think 10,000 times faster than we do and they will regard us as we now regard plants - as desperately slow acting ...

Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE

A magnificently fresh and unexpected biography of Churchill, by one of Britain's most acclaimed historians. Winston Churchill towers over every other figure in twentieth-century British history.

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0047

This is the epic story of the universe and our place in it, from 13.8 billion years ago to the remote future How did we get from the Big Bang to today's staggering complexity, in which seven billion humans are connected into networks powerful enough to transform the planet?

HOW NATIONS COPE WITH CRISIS AND CHANGE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0050

In his landmark international bestsellers Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse, Jared Diamond transformed our understanding of what makes civilizations rise and fall. Now in the third book in this monumental trilogy, he reveals how successful nations recover from crisis. Diamond shows us how seven countries have survived defining upheavals in the recent past - from the forced opening up of Japan and the Soviet invasion of Finland to the Pinochet regime in Chile - through selective change, a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation m...

(H/B) THE ORDER OF TIME
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0040

"We are time. We are this space, this clearing opened by the traces of memory inside the connections between our neurons. We are memory. We are nostalgia. We are longing for a future that will not come." Time is a mystery that does not cease to puzzle us. Philosophers, artists and poets have long explored its meaning while scientists have found that its structure is different from the simple intuition we have of it. From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radic...

(H/B) SKIN IN THE GAME
HIDDEN ASYMMETRIES IN DAILY LIFE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0037

"Skin in the game means that you do not pay attention to what people say, only to what they do, and how much of their neck they are putting on the line" Citizens, artisans, police, fishermen, political activists and entrepreneurs all have skin in the game. Policy wonks, corporate executives, many academics, bankers and most journalists don't. It's all about having something to lose and sharing risks with others. In his most provocative and practical book yet, Nassim Nicholas Taleb shows that skin in the game, often seen as the foundation ...

(H/B) A CERTAIN IDEA OF FRANCE
THE LIFE OF CHARLES DE GAULLE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0045

In six weeks in the early summer of 1940, France was over-run by German troops and quickly surrendered. The French government of Marshal Petain sued for peace and signed an armistice. One little-known junior French general, refusing to accept defeat, made his way to England. On 18 June he spoke to his compatriots over the BBC, urging them to rally to him in London. 'Whatever happens, the flame of French resistance must not be extinguished and will not be extinguished.' At that moment, Charles de Gaulle entered into history. For the rest of...

(H/B) THE COLD WAR
A WORLD HISTORY
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0044

As Germany and then Japan surrendered in 1945 there was a tremendous hope that a new and much better world could be created from the moral and physical ruins of the conflict. Instead, the combination of the huge power of the USA and USSR and the near-total collapse of most of their rivals created a unique, grim new environment: the Cold War. For over forty years the demands of the Cold War shaped the life of almost all of us. There was no part of the world where East and West did not, ultimately, demand a blind and absolute allegiance, and...

(H/B) ENLIGHTENMENT NOW
THE CASE FOR REASON, SCIENCE, HUMANISM, AND PROGRESS
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0039

If you follow the news, the 21st century doesn't seem to be going so well. From 9/11 to the Great Recession, the Syrian civil war, the Ebola epidemic, growing inequality, racial unrest, and bitterly contested elections, the world seems to be sinking into chaos and hatred. Moralizing commentators tell us that the decline of religious belief and close-knit communities has left us spiritually adrift, without a grounding in moral values, so it's no wonder we're suffering through an epidemic of loneliness, unhappiness, and suicide. And then the...

HOW A DECADE OF FINANCIAL CRISES CHANGED THE WORLD
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0042

The definitive history of the Great Financial Crisis, from the acclaimed author of The Deluge and The Wages of Destruction. In September 2008 the Great Financial Crisis, triggered by the collapse of Lehman brothers, shook the world. A decade later its spectre still haunts us. As the appalling scope and scale of the crash was revealed, the financial institutions that had symbolised the West's triumph since the end of the Cold War, seemed - through greed, malice and incompetence - to be about to bring the entire system to its knees. Crashed ...
