  • 'The Story of Britain' is an eminently readable history of the isles

    The book made fine, invigorating reading two decades ago, and it still does (making room, of course, for the addition of the Brexit referendum). Author Roy Strong leads readers smoothly through rulers and epochs, with a narrative style that's happily free of a metahistorical agenda.

  • Glittering currents of the Ganges River

    Like all great rivers, the Ganges carries important cultural and spiritual meaning. Author Sudipta Sen illuminates the background of this sacred river, connecting it to thousands of years of Indian history.
