Mail Men is the gripping, unofficial story of an institution that has become the self-proclaimed voice of middle England, and the adversary of liberals everywhere. Journalist Adrian Addison investigates the secret behind the Mail's extraordinary longevity and commercial success but also examines the controversies that have beset the paper - from its owner's flirtation with fascism in the 1930s to its fractious relationship with liberals, celebrities and politicians today. Revelatory and captivating, this book also gets under the skin of Paul Dacre, the once awkward reporter who has become one of the most feared, hated, secretive, and respected editors in Britain. This is an essential read if you wish to understand modern Britain.

A massive audience in sitting-rooms, parks and pubs watched England in the 2018 World Cup. Yet as Duncan Hamilton demonstrates with style, insight and wit in Going to the Match, watching on TV is no substitute for being there. Hamilton embarks on a richly entertaining, exquisitely crafted journey through football. Glory game or grass roots, England v Slovenia or Guiseley v Hartlepool, he delves beneath the action to illuminate the stories which make the sport endlessly compelling. Along the way he marvels at present-day titans Harry Kane, Mo Salah, Kevin De Bruyne and Paul Pogba, reflects on sepia-tinted magicians Stanley Matthews, Jimmy Greaves, Bobby Charlton and Pele, and assesses managerial giants from Brian Clough and Jose Mourinho to Arsene Wenger and Gareth Southgate. The odyssey takes Hamilton from Fleetwood to Berlin, via Glasgow and a Manchester derby, making detours into art, cinema, literature and politics as he explores the game's ever-changing culture and character. The result, like the L.S. Lowry painting that inspired the book, is a football masterpiece.

At the cutting edge of sport, where winners go one way and losers the other, Ian Wooldridge made his living as a journalist. His shrewd eye went straight to the heart of sport's pressure situations, unerringly detecting courage in the competitors, and raising the spirits of his readers with his celebration of genuine heroism. His style was at one and the same time convulsively amusing and acidic. He saw the funny side, yet he was merciless in his search for the truth. SEARCHING FOR HEROES is a collection of Ian's articles on his heroes - including Mohammed Ali, Shane Warne and George Best - as well as articles on events and personalities that were on the receiving end of his more acerbic commentaries. Wooldridge brought back an intelligence to modern sports journalism, and an idealism that had become somewhat tarnished. To Ian Wooldridge sport was more than a game.

In the late summer of 1940 Madame Claudette Lamartine set out from her home in Nazi-occupied France to find her missing husband in England. For her in particular this perilous journey is more than especially fraught with personal dangers and difficulty. More than thirty years later, following the first of two British snap elections in 1974, ex-newspaperman turned government press chief, John Colebrook, has been told his face no longer fits in Whitehall. Sent home to cool his heels while his future is decided, he is secretly approached by Sally Hegarty, a rising young civil servant, who enlists him to investigate the wartime activities of a prominent industrialist. His searches begin to reveal a connection with Madame Lamartine's journey and a murky wartime conspiracy in Lisbon, whose instigators may still be active in public life. Colebrook begins to suspect he too is under surveillance and starts to have doubts about Sally's real motives for involving him. But he is torn by his feelings for her.
