But since 2008, the European Union has ricocheted between stagnation and crisis. The question is: Can the euro be saved? This important book, by Nobel Prizewinning economist Joseph Sitglitz, addresses the euro-crisis on a bigger intellectual scale than any predecessor. PB $32.99 In this essay collection, Singer applies his ways of thinking to issues like climate change, extreme poverty, abortion, euthanasia, human genetic selection, and increasing happiness.

Known and Strange Things Teju Cole The Promise of Things Ruth Quibell The Undoing Project Michael Lewis PB $29.99 With this collection of more than fifty pieces on politics, photography, travel, history and literature, Teju Cole solidifies his place as one of today's most powerful and original voices.

G. Sebald to Instagram, Barack Obama, and Boko Haram. PB $27.99 Some of our strongest, most lasting relationships are hidden in plain view—those we have with objects. What do our possessions do for us? And how do they do it? In The Promise of Things, Ruth Quibell explores what our possessions say about us—who we think we are, what we long for and struggle against. It invites us to think about how we use things, what makes them precious, and why we find it so hard to throw these objects away. HB $45.00 Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky met in war-torn 1960s Israel. Both were gifted young psychology professors. In this breathtaking new book, Michael Lewis tells the extraordinary story of a relationship that became a shared mind: one which created the field of behavioural economics, revolutionising everything from Big Data to medicine, from how we are governed to how we spend, from high finance to football.
