Sicilian Shadows

The compelling memoir of a young boy’s struggle for survival in the heartland of the Mafia. It is a story of tragic young love and centuries-old hatreds told with wry humour and brutal honesty. No-one from that region with the author’s connections or perspective has ever written about what it was really like: names, times and places have been changed (to protect the innocent and, in many cases, the guilty), but these events and experiences really happened. In paperback. Hardback out of stock.

Demography: Putting Politics in its Place

Where Democracy Goes Next

Every day, all around you, you see democracy running into a dead end. In this little book, Denis Becket sums up succinctly what you will shortly perceive to be the outstandingly obvious path to making democracy work – for everyone, everywhere. That is into the hands of “the multitude who do not attend the rallies, do not wear the T-shirts, do not shout the slogans and cannot spell ideolagy. Make them the flywheel of sane politics, the big inanimate force that imposes stability on the whirring busy parts.”
