Tim Marshall’s Divided a Sunday Times bestseller!

Posted on 18 Sep 2018 - 13:49

Tim Marshall’s brilliantly topical and incisive new book Divided: Why We’re Living in an Age of Walls has hit the Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller list alongside his runaway success Prisoners of Geography!

Walls are going up - nationalism is on the rise once more. Over 6,000 miles of fences and barriers have been erected in the past ten years and they are redefining our political landscape. At a time where many countries are drawing their lines deep in the sand understanding what divides us, past and present, is essential to understanding much of what’s going on in the world today. In Divided, this month’s Waterstones Nonfiction Book of the Month, Tim delves into our past and our present to reveal the fault lines that will shape our world for years to come.

It’s a fantastic achievement – well done, Tim!

Travellers in the Third Reich: now a Sunday Times Bestseller!

Posted on 14 Jun 2018 - 10:45

Congratulations to Julia Boyd, whose brilliant Travellers in the Third Reich is a Waterstones paperback of the month, and a Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller!

Travellers in the Third Reich: The Rise of Fascism Through the Eyes of Everyday People is an extraordinary history of the rise of the Nazis based on fascinating first-hand accounts, drawing together a multitude of voices and stories, including students, politicians, musicians, diplomats, schoolchildren, communists, scholars, athletes, poets, journalists, fascists, artists, tourists, even celebrities like Charles Lindbergh and Samuel Beckett. Their experiences create a remarkable three-dimensional picture of Germany under Hitler – one so palpable that the reader will feel, hear, even breathe the atmosphere.

It’s a spectacular achievement and we couldn’t be more delighted – well done, Julia!
