            Geography comes before history. Islands cannot have the same history as continental plains. The United Kingdom is a European country, but not the same kind of European country as Germany, Poland or Hungary. For most of the 150 centuries during which Britain has been inhabited it ...has been on the edge, literally and culturally, of mainland Europe. Robert Tombs argues that the Brexit vote is historically explicable - though not historically inevitable - by Britain's very different experience of the 20th century, and our more extensive and deeper economic and cultural ties outside Europe. Now that the Brexit debate has been decided and the turmoil has lessened, Tombs places Britain's period as a member of the EU, and exit from it, in a historical context. He considers the islands' sovereign history and their future role as a global, rather than European, Britain.

            Why cooperate? This may be the most important scientific question we have ever, and will ever face. The science of cooperation tells us not only how we got here, but also, if we are not careful, where we might end up.Cooperation is the means by which complex life arose, allowing ...us to move from strands of DNA to modern-day nation states. But cooperation is also fragile, and not easy to reconcile with the theory of evolution by natural selection and selfish genes. In the natural world, individuals don't tend to help other individuals; cooperating does not seem to come naturally. However, there are some outliers - and they just happen to be some of the most fascinating and extraordinarily successful species on this planet. We are among them.This book is a story about us - you and me. But it is also about them- the other species who have discovered a cooperative way of life - from the pied babblers of the Kalahari to the cleaner fish of the Great Barrier Reef. The clues to understanding our own place on Earth exist not only in comparisons with other primates but on multiple different branches of the evolutionary tree, where we find species who live, like us- together.Written at a time of global pandemic, when the challenges and importance of cooperation have never been greater, THE SOCIAL INSTINCT is a fascinating insight into what makes us human.

            Why cooperate? This may be the most important scientific question we have ever, and will ever, face. The science of cooperation tells us not only how we got here, but also where we might end up. Cooperation explains how strands of DNA gave rise to modern-day nation states. It def...ines our extraordinary ecological success as well as many of the most surprising features of what make us human: not only why we live in families, why we have grandmothers and why women experience the menopause, but also why we become paranoid and jealous, and why we cheat. Nichola Raihani also introduces us to other species who, like us, live and work together. From the pied babblers of the Kalahari to the cleaner fish of the Great Barrier Reef, they happen to be some of the most fascinating and extraordinarily successful species on this planet. What do we have in common with these other species, and what is it that sets us apart? Written at a time of global pandemic, when the challenges and importance of cooperation have never been greater, The Social Instinct is an exhilarating, far-reaching and thought-provoking journey through all life on Earth, with profound insights into what makes us human and how our societies work.

            In the twentieth century, European democracies collapsed into fascism, Nazism and communism. These were movements in which a leader or a party claimed to give voice to the people and established rule by an elite with a monopoly on truth. European history shows us that societies c...an break, democracies can fall, and ethics can collapse.

            Naomi Klein - award-winning journalist, bestselling author of No Logo, The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, scourge of brand bullies and corporate liars - gives us the toolkit we need to survive our surreal, shocking age. 'Trump, as extreme as he is, is less an aberrat...ion than a logical conclusion - a pastiche of pretty much all the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half century. A one-man megabrand, with wife and children as spin-off brands...' Remember when it all seemed to be getting better? Before Trump happened? Naomi Klein, internationally acclaimed journalist, activist and bestselling author, shows us how we got to this surreal and dangerous place, how to stop it getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can make things better. No Is Not Enough reveals, among other things, how Trump's election was not a peaceful transition, but a corporate takeover, one using deliberate shock tactics to generate wave after wave of crises and force through radical policies that will destroy people, the environment, the economy and national security. This book is the toolkit for shock resistance, showing all of us how we can break Trump's spell and win the world we need. Don't let them get away with it. 'Naomi is like a great doctor - she can diagnose problems nobody else sees' Alfonso Cuaron 'I count her among the most inspirational political thinkers in the world today' Arundhati Roy 'Naomi Klein as a writer is an accusing angel' John Berger
