            The definitive inside account of Labour's rise and demise under Corbyn Left Out by Gabriel Pogrund and Patrick Maguire draws on exceptional access throughout the Labour party and Corbyn's inner circle to reveal in full and for the first time the extraordinary story of Labour's tu...multuous transformation in the last three years. A gripping narrative account of the party's journey from Corbyn's zenith, immediately after the general election of 2017, to its humbling at the election of 2019 and a new leadership contest, it will reveal a party riven by infighting, factionalism and crisis. By turns shocking, farcical and tragic, it will be essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand one of the most remarkable periods in the history of the British Left. As well as an authoritative account of the war within Labour over its Brexit policy and whether to back the calling of a general election, it will shed dramatic new light on what was happening behind the scenes during the antisemitism scandal and the formation of the break-away Independent Group, as well as the plots, failed coups and secret negotiations that were taking place throughout the 2019 general election campaign itself. Ultimately, it will help explain Labour's collapse at the polls and reveal a party that has fundamentally shifted on its axis, with profound implications for its long-term future.

            The Outlier: The Unfinished Presidency Of Jimmy Carter

            An essential re-evaluation of the complex triumphs and tragedies of Jimmy Carter's presidential legacy--from the expert biographer and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of American Prometheus Ever since Ronald Reagan's landslide win in November 1980, pundits have labeled Jimmy Carter...'s single term in the White House a failed presidency. But Carter's time as president is a compelling and underexplored story, marked by accomplishment and adversity. In this deeply researched, brilliantly written account, the first full presidential biography of Jimmy Carter, Kai Bird approaches Carter's presidency with an expert hand, unfolding the story of Carter's four years with few allies inside Washington and a great many critics in the media. As president, Carter was not merely an outsider, but indeed an outlier. He was the only president in a century to grow up in the heart of the old confederacy, and though he held strongly to the separation of church and state, his born-again Christianity made him the most openly religious president in memory. As Bird shows, this background manifested itself in an unusual complex of arrogance, humility, and candor that neither Washington nor America was prepared to embrace. Forty years before today's broad public reckoning with the vast gulf between America's creed and its actions, Carter looked out over a nation torn by race, crippled by stagflation, and demoralized by both Watergate and Vietnam and prescribed a radical self-examination from which voters ultimately recoiled. The cost of Carter's unshakeable belief in doing the right thing would be a second term--and the ascendance of Reagan. The issues that Carter contended with in the late 1970s are still hotly debated today: national health care, growing inequality, energy independence, racism, immigration, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Forty years after voters turned him out of the White House, Carter appears remarkably prescient on the major issues facing the country in the twenty-first c

            FitzRoy - Beyond the Rumours: Tenth Governor of New South Wales, First Governor-General of Australia (Hardback)

            Was Governor FitzRoy the man popular history would have us believe? Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy's tenure as Governor of New South Wales and Governor-General of Australia between 1846 and 1855 was plagued by rumour. Mention FitzRoy and he is either not remembered at all, remember...ed as the Governor who caused his wife's death or as a shameless womaniser. Are these damning comments justified? It was the time of Wentworth, Parkes and Lang, giant political figures in New South Wales' early history. FitzRoy's administration oversaw matters such as settlement of the contentious crown land issue and squatters' rights, discovery of gold, education and introduction of the railway. A man of the British Empire, he served firstly his King, then a young Queen Victoria as the Crown's Vice Regal representative at Prince Edward island, the Leeward Islands and finally, New South Wales. This commissioned biography portrays FitzRoy in a light not previously considered, from a personal, family oriented aspect, stretching from childhood to the battlefields of Waterloo. Going beyond the rumours set in motion in 1847, it reveals a worldly diplomat, a Governor who encouraged those around him to act on their beliefs.
