            'A must-read. Acemoglu and Robinson are intellectual heavyweights of the first rank . . . erudite and fascinating' Paul Collier, Guardian, on Why Nations Fail In this profoundly important follow up to their global bestseller, Acemoglu and Robinson provide a powerful new framework... for looking at countries' development through the way that the state interacts with society. This conceptualisation - in which any country can be located on a simple diagram and its future predicted - is new and based on decades of their research. The power distribution between state and society affects how peaceful societies are, what types of institutions develop, how much oppression and fear people suffer, how their economies are organized, and how rich they are. Full of entertaining stories from the past (it starts with the wife of a Nigerian ruler fleeing Abuja with 38 suitcases of cash), Balance of Power sheds light on issues from the present and has practical political ideas for the future. 'An intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve' Martin Wolf, Financial Times, on Why Nations Fail

            Our justice system, once the envy of the world, is in a state of cardiac arrest. Crime has risen to record levels; serious violence, including knife crime, drug-related behaviour and gang activity are out of control. Social media and the internet are fuelling criminal activity by... providing places for criminals to operate and influence young people. In this book one of the UK's leading criminal defence barristers, Chris Daw QC, provides an insider's view of the justice system - complete with fascinating real-life accounts - and proposes radical solutions to some of the biggest challenges it now faces. After a brief introduction and outline of the history of justice in the UK and abroad, Chris presents his manifesto for the twenty-first century: he examines the use of prisons, both in the UK and the US on Alabama's 'Death Row'; he argues passionately for the legalization of drugs to destroy the criminal networks who traffic in their supply; he speaks to young people who are the perpetrators and victims of crime, delving into youth crime and the treatment of young offenders, and he examines the role of the internet as the new frontier of organised criminal activity. Finally, he asks us to move beyond the binary of 'good and evil', to adopt a more pragmatic and humane approach to justice - one that could allow Britain to have the lowest crime rate on Earth.
