  • GEORGE WASHINGTON: POEMS

    In the wake of the critical success of The Late Parade (?poetry as lush as any of Keats?s odes,? New York Times Book Review), Adam Fitzgerald?s George Washington follows in the documentary poetics tradition of William Carlos Williams?s In the American Grain and Susan Howe?s My Emily Dickinson. These frenetic poems channel the proper names and product placement in the suburban New Jersey memescape of the 1990s. Fitzgerald?s catalogs?a world of video games and love songs, entertainment franchises and widespread anomie?seek out the proxies by which millions now live their most intimate experiences, examining everything from sexuality and faith to the spectacles of shopping and mass shootings. The poet?s memory may prove as fungible as the once-ubiquitous VHS cassette, but these queer poems form a hypertext archive of life as it?s packaged and purveyed. Fitzgerald?s ?primal vision? (Harold Bloom), so wildly alive in The Late Parade, metamorphoses into an exhilarating exploration of Americana?s dark origins.

  • THE DAWN OF EVERYTHING

    For generations, our remote ancestors have been cast as primitive and childlike – either free and equal, or thuggish and warlike. Civilization, we are told, could be achieved only by sacrificing those original freedoms or, alternatively, by taming our baser instincts. David Graeber and David Wengrow show how such theories first emerged in the eighteenth century as a reaction to indigenous critiques of European society, and why they are wrong. In doing so, they overturn our view of human history, including the origins of farming, property, cities, democracy, slavery and civilization itself.

  • THE POWER OF STRANGERS

    An exploration of why we don’t talk to strangers, and the wonderful things that would happen if we did.

    ‘In a thrilling, immersive journey across time and continents, Keohane upends everything we thought we knew about the people we don’t know’ Will Storr, author of The Science of Storytelling

    When was the last time you spoke to a stranger?

    In cities, we stand in silent buses and train carriages, ignoring each other. Online, we retreat into silos and carefully curate who we interact with. In our politics, we are increasingly consumed by a fear of people we’ve never met.

  • ENEMIES AND NEIGHBOURS

    In Enemies and Neighbors, Ian Black, who has spent over three decades covering events in the Middle East and is currently a fellow at the London School of Economics, offers a major new history of the Arab-Zionist conflict from 1917 to today, published on the centenary of the Balfour Declaration. Laying the historical groundwork in the final decades of the Ottoman era, when the first Zionist settlers arrived in the Holy Land, Black draws on a wide range of sources–from declassified documents to oral histories to his own vivid on-the-ground reporting to recreate the major milestones in the most polarizing conflict of the modern age, and from both sides. In the third year of World War I, the seed was planted for an inevitable clash: Jerusalem governor Izzat Pasha surrendered to British troops and foreign secretary Lord Balfour issued a fateful document promising the establishment of “a national home for the Jewish people.” The chronicle takes us through the Arab rebellion of the 1930s; the long shadow of the Nazi Holocaust; the war of 1948 culminating in Israel’s independence and the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe); the “cursed victory” of the Six-Day War of 1967 and the Palestinian re-awakening; the first and second Intifadas; the Oslo Accords; and other failed peace negotiations and continued violence up to 2017.

  • NEW JERUSALEM

    IN FEBRUARY 1534 a radical religious sect whose disciples were being persecuted throughout Europe seized the city, in the German-speaking land of Westphalia. They were convinced that they were God’s Elect, specially chosen by the Almighty to be the first to ascend to Paradise on Judgement Day, as told in the Book of Revelation. And it would all happen here, in “New Jerusalem” (as they renamed the city), during Easter 1535, when God and Christ would descend and usher in the End Times. But the Melchiorites?, as they were called after their founding prophet, would be well-prepared for Apocalypse, swiftly turning the city into a Christian theocracy: They threw out the Catholics and Lutherans, rebaptised their followers, destroyed all old religious icons, adopted a communist system of shared property, and imposed a new law of polygamy that compelled all women and girls who’d reached puberty to marry. Because women outnumbered men about three times, many men had 3-5 wives. John of Leiden, who proclaimed himself king of New Jerusalem, had 16 wives, all according to God’s exhortation in Genesis to go forth and multiply. The backlash against the sect would be long and brutal.
