            That September 2, 1939, the day of the Spanish exiles' splendid arrival in Chile, the Second World War broke out in Europe. Victor Dalmau is a young doctor when he is caught up in the Spanish Civil War, a tragedy that leaves his life - and the fate of his country - forever change...d. Together with his sister-in-law, the pianist Roser Bruguera, he is forced out of his beloved Barcelona and into exile. When opportunity to seek refuge in Chile arises, they take it, boarding a ship chartered by the poet Pablo Neruda to the promised `long petal of sea and wine and snow' over the seas. There, they find themselves enmeshed in a rich web of characters who come together in love and tragedy over the course of four generations, destined to witness the battle between freedom and repression as it plays out across the world. A masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile and belonging, A Long Petal of the Sea is Isabel Allende at the height of her powers.

            How to Be a Dictator: The Cult of Personality in the Twentieth Century

            How to Be a Dictator: The Cult of Personality in the Twentieth Century (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-sung, Ceausescu, Mengistu of Ethiopia and Duvalier of Haiti. No dictator can rule through fear and violence alone. Naked power can be grabbed and held temporarily, but it never suffices in the long term. A tyrant who can compel his ow...n people to acclaim him will last longer. The paradox of the modern dictator is that he must create the illusion of popular support. Throughout the twentieth century, hundreds of millions of people were condemned to enthusiasm, obliged to hail their leaders even as they were herded down the road to serfdom. In How to Be a Dictator, Frank Dikoetter returns to eight of the most chillingly effective personality cults of the twentieth century. From carefully choreographed parades to the deliberate cultivation of a shroud of mystery through iron censorship, these dictators ceaselessly worked on their own image and encouraged the population at large to glorify them. At a time when democracy is in retreat, are we seeing a revival of the same techniques among some of today's world leaders? This timely study, told with great narrative verve, examines how a cult takes hold, grows, and sustains itself. It places the cult of personality where it belongs, at the very heart of tyranny.

            Indigenous Peoples and the State: International Perspectives on the Treaty of Waitangi
             

            Indigenous Peoples and the State: International Perspectives on the Treaty of Waitangi (Paperback)

            Across the globe, there are numerous examples of treaties, compacts, or other negotiated agreements that mediate relationships between Indigenous peoples and states or settler communities. Perhaps the best known of these, New Zealand's Treaty of Waitangi is a living, and historic...ally rich, illustration of this types of negotiated agreement, and both the symmetries and asymmetries of Indigenous-State relations. This collection refreshes the scholarly and public discourse relating to the Treaty of Waitangi and makes a significant contribution to the international discussion of Indigenous-State relations and reconciliation. The essays in this collection explore the diversity of meanings that have been ascribed to Indigenous-State compacts, such as the Treaty, by different interpretive communities. As such, they enable and illuminate a more dynamic conversation about their meanings and applications, as well as their critical role in processes of reconciliation and transitional justice today.

            Running Against the Devil: A plot to save America from Trump - and Democrats from themselves

            Running Against the Devil: A plot to save America from Trump - and Democrats from themselves (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            In this full-throttle playbook for 2020, Rick Wilson, longtime Republican strategist and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything Trump Touches Dies, warns Democrats not to make the mistakes that could re-elect the worst president in history. He argues that Trump is as ...bad as we thought, and worse. His re-election would be a disaster for democracy, for America, and the world as we know it. A thirty-year veteran of national political campaigns and one of the most famous ad makers in politics, Rick Wilson brings his experience, insight, knowledge, and signature humour to the 2020 race, just in time to save the Democrats from their worst instincts. He hammers Trump's destructive and dangerous first term, outlining the mistakes both the Republicans and Hillary Clinton made running against Trump in 2016. He shows exactly how the campaign for Trump will operate, and how Trump will use his social media power against the Democrats. Hope is not lost - if Democrats listen and learn from Wilson. Drawing on his time as a political guru, and infused with his cutting, witty commentary, Running Against the Devil shows Democrats how to deploy what they've learned in the past two years, what the president's weak spots are, what the rules of the 2020 election reality show will be, and where and how to reach the all-important swing voters. Democrats must use every trick in the political playbook in the 2020 election, and Wilson knows where the bodies are buried. A sharply funny and brutally honest assessment of Trump's abysmal, destructive record and of the pitfalls for Democrats that lie ahead, Running Against the Devil lays out a no-nonsense, no-holds-barred roadmap to saving America from Donald Trump. The stakes are too high to do anything less.
