An Inconvenient Genocide

By Geoffrey Robertson QC

Published on 11 August 2015

At the centenary of the deaths of over a million Armenian people, renowned human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson seeks to prove beyond all reasonable doubt that the horrific events in the Ottoman Empire in 1915 constitute the crime against humanity that is today known as genocide. This paperback edition includes a new chapter deploring the hypocrisy of Britain and the United States, who refuse to recognise the genocide, rather than risk alienating their NATO ally.

by Ivan Fallon

Black Horse Ride tells the inside story of what really occurred in the aftermath of the crash of Lehman Brothers, perhaps the worst single day in banking history.

We're delighted to be hosting the brand new podcast, Iain Dale's Political Books Podcast, on Politicos.co.uk.

So far in the series we've published an interview with Gyles Brandreth (writer, broadcaster, former MP and government whip) and Neville Thurlbeck (journalist and former News of the World news editor). We're still working on the sound quality, so bear with us whilst we fine-tune our equipment. We hope you'll agree the quality of the interview more than compensates for this. Don't miss out on the great book offers we'll be doing to coincide with these interviews. Tabloid Secrets is currently on offer for just £10.99. 

The podcast can be listenend to on all major platforms:

Iain Dale said: "I used to host the LBC Book Club hour, which was highly popular. Unfortunately, it was discontinued last year, so I have decided to start a new podcast, called Iain Dale's Political Books Podcast. The idea is to talk to a political author about their own book and maybe also their three favourite books for anything between 20 minutes and three quarters of an hour. The great thing about podcasts is that they can be as long as I like. In the coming weeks you’ll be able to hear me talk to Andrew Marr, Michael Dobbs, Stanley Johnson, James Bartholomew, Vicky Pryce, and Eliza Filby. Let me know if there are any authors you’d like "
