READING: In "The Last Lion," the first volume of Manchester's two-volume biography, the Winston Spencer Churchill story is one of high adventure, bitter defeats, and the inner strength of the towering Englishman whose watchword was: "Never give in. Never, never, never, never give in." In historical crises his soaring prose and histrionic manner made superb theatre. Lesser politicians, like Ramsay MacDonald and Stanley Baldwin ("Two nurses, " he called them, "fit to keep silence in a darkened room"), could not grasp his vision, his complex drives, and his desperate search for ways to escape the heavy, almost suicidal depressions which stalked him throughout his extraordinary career.

READING: Lion is de indrukwekkende verfilming van Mijn lange weg naar huis, met Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) en Rooney Mara in de hoofdrollen Op een klein station in India is de vijfjarige Saroo zijn broer kwijtgeraakt. Hij klimt in een treinstel om hem te zoeken, maar raakt per ongeluk opgesloten en komt helemaal alleen aan de andere kant van India in Calcutta terecht. Zonder zijn familie en zonder te weten uit welk dorpje hij komt, zwerft hij wekenlang door de straten van de grote stad tot hij wordt opgenomen door een weeshuis. Ook daar weten ze zijn familie niet op te sporen en uiteindelijk wordt Saroo geadopteerd door een Australisch echtpaar bij wie hij gelukkig opgroeit. Als hij bijna dertig is, en de technologie zo veel verder is dan toen, gaat Saroo met behulp van Google Earth op zoek naar het station waar hij al die jaren geleden zijn familie kwijtraakte. Elke avond bekijkt hij urenlang de spoorlijnen die naar Calcutta leiden, tot hij na een jaar dat ene station denkt te herkennen. Hij vertrekt naar India om te kijken of hij zijn familie weer terug kan vinden... De pers over Mijn lange weg naar huis ‘Lees dit aangrijpende verhaal. Met zijn levendige herinneringen beheerst Saroo de kunst van het vertellen.’ The Weekly Review ‘Ik kon dit boek niet wegleggen. Saroos zoektocht, evenals de veerkracht van de mens, zal je laten huilen van vreugde.’ **** Manly Daily ‘Een feelgoodboek over een zeer bijzondere reis.’ Sun-Herald

READING: Alone is the second volume of William Manchester's brilliant three-volume biography of Winston Churchill. In this volume, we witness the war within, before the colossal war to come. During this period, Churchill was tested as few men are: relentlessly pursued by creditors, disowned by his own party, vociferously dismissed by the press as a warmonger, and twice nearly lost his seat in Parliament. Yet despite his personal and political troubles, Churchill managed to assemble a vast, underground intelligence network-both within the British government and on the continent-which provided him with more complete and accurate information on Germany than the British government. Recognizing the horrifying truth, Churchill stood almost alone against Nazi aggression and the sordid British and French policy of appeasement. Manchester's luminous portrait never loses sight of Churchill the man-a man with limitations, especially his callousness toward others (including his supporters) and his recklessness, which could border on the foolhardy; but also a man whose vision was global and whose courage was boundless. Here is Churchill as a light in the approaching darkness, readying himself for the terrible stand to come.

READING: The long-awaited final volume of William Manchester's legendary biography of Winston Churchill. Spanning the years of 1940-1965, THE LAST LION picks up shortly after Winston Churchill became Prime Minister-when his tiny island nation stood alone against the overwhelming might of Nazi Germany. The Churchill conjured up by William Manchester and Paul Reid is a man of indomitable courage, lightning fast intellect, and an irresistible will to action. THE LAST LION brilliantly recounts how Churchill organized his nation's military response and defense; compelled FDR into supporting America's beleaguered cousins, and personified the "never surrender" ethos that helped the Allies win the war, while at the same time adapting himself and his country to the inevitable shift of world power from the British Empire to the United States. More than twenty years in the making, THE LAST LION presents a revelatory and unparalleled portrait of this brilliant, flawed, and dynamic leader. This is popular history at its most stirring.

READING: 'Fantastisch' - Matthijs van Nieuwkerk '100 levens in één' - Sywert van Lienden in DWDD '[...] superieure schrijfstijl en creatieve vondsten,' de Volkskrant Vijftig jaar na de dood van Winston Churchill onderzoekt Boris Johnson de 'Churchillfactor'. Wat maakte Churchill, een van de belangrijkste leiders van de twintigste eeuw, zo uniek en briljant? Johnson ontrafelt de mythes en de misvattingen, het meer dan levensgrote beeld dat we van Churchill hebben. Hij beschrijft hem met gedrevenheid en een scherp gevoel voor humor: een man vol tegenstellingen, met een aanstekelijke bravoure, een adembenemende welbespraaktheid, groots strategisch inzicht en een intense menselijkheid. Churchill was een gevierd journalist en een geweldige redenaar. Hij won de Nobelprijs voor de literatuur in 1953. Hij was beroemd en berucht om zijn vermogen drank en chique diners te combineren met tot diep in de nacht doorwerken. Hij was moedig en kordaat. Zijn ruimdenkendheid maakte hem een pionier in de gezondheidszorg, het onderwijs en de sociale zekerheid, hoewel hij altijd onverbeterlijk politiek incorrect bleef. De Churchillfactor is een boek dat niet alleen mensen aanspreekt die geïnteresseerd zijn in geschiedenis. Het is een boek dat essentieel is voor iedereen die wil weten hoe een groot leider eruit ziet. Boris Johnson is journalist, schrijver, historicus en politicus. Na het Britse 'ja' voor een Brexit, waar hij een groot voorstander van was, werd hij in juli 2016 aangesteld als minister van Buitenlandse Zaken en Gemenebest. Van 2008 tot 2016 was hij burgemeester van Londen. Hij is de auteur van verschillende boeken, waaronder Johnson's Life of London (heruitgegeven als The Spirit of London), Have I got Views for You en The Dream of Rome.

READING: This author is generally considered the greatest modern Spanish author. His novel Blood and Sand, famous in its own right, became the memorable Valentino screen classic, and The Four Horesemen of the Apocalypse has been translated into several languages. Blasco Ibanez was considered a communist by many of his contemporaries since his themes usually dealt with corrupt practices of the ruling Spanish bureaucracy, and the need for economic reforms in a classless society. This volume contains many of his shorter masterpieces.

READING: Winston Spencer Churchill: Alone, 1932-1940 is the second volume of the outstanding three volume The Last Lion, the ultimate Churchill biography from the award-winning historian, William Manchester. In this triumphant biography, William Manchester, contends that Churchill's lonely battle against appeasement, even more than his leadership in war, was the Last Lion's finest hour. Politically isolated in Parliament, sometimes jeered at and scorned when he warned of the growing Nazi threat, Churchill stood alone, a beacon of hope amid the gathering storm.

READING: "Masterful . . . The collaboration completes the Churchill portrait in a seamless manner, combining the detailed research, sharp analysis and sparkling prose that readers of the first two volumes have come to expect." - Associated Press Spanning the years 1940 to 1965, The Last Lion: Defender of the Realm, 1940-1965 begins shortly after Winston Churchill became prime minister-when Great Britain stood alone against the overwhelming might of Nazi Germany. In brilliant prose and informed by decades of research, William Manchester and Paul Reid recount how Churchill organized his nation's military response and defence, convinced FDR to support the cause, and personified the "never surrender" ethos that helped win the war. We witness Churchill, driven from office, warning the world of the coming Soviet menace. And after his triumphant return to 10 Downing Street, we follow him as he pursues his final policy goal: a summit with President Dwight Eisenhower and Soviet leaders. In conclusion, we experience Churchill's last years, when he faces the end of his life with the same courage he brought to every battle he ever fought.

READING: The illegal killing of Cecil – a famous and magnificent black-maned Zimbabwean lion – by an American big-game hunter in 2015 sparked international outrage. More significantly, it drew the world's attention to the devastating plight of Africa's lions. A century ago, there were more than 200,000 wild lions living in Africa. Today, with that population reduced by more than 90 per cent, many experts believe that without effective conservation plans, Africa's remaining wild lions could be completely wiped out by the mid-half of this century. When the Last Lion Roars explores the historic rise and fall of the lion as a global species, and examines the reasons behind its catastrophic decline. Interwoven with vivid personal encounters of Africa's last lions, Sara Evans questions what is being done to reverse (or at least stem) this population collapse, and she considers the importance of human responsibility in this decline and, more crucially, in their conservation. From the Lion Guardians in Kenya to the Living Walls of Tanzania, and the Hwange Lion Research Project in Zimbabwe, Sara meets both lions and their champions, people who are fighting to bring this iconic species back from the brink of extinction.

READING: William Manchester met Winston Churchill on January 24, 1953. Their encounter on the Queen Mary sparked an intense curiosity in Manchester that would eventually result in his classic three-volume magnum opus The Last Lion. In this, the first volume, we follow Churchill from his birth to 1932, when he began to warn against the remilitarization of Germany. Born of a lovely, wanton American mother and a gifted but unstable son of a duke, his childhood was one of wretched neglect. He sought glory on the battlefields of Cuba, Sudan, India, South Africa and the trenches of France. In Parliament he was the prime force behind the creation of Iraq and Jordan, laid the groundwork for the birth of Israel, and negotiated the independence of the Irish Free State. Yet, as Chancellor of the Exchequer he plunged England into economic crisis, and his fruitless attempt to suppress Gandhi's quest for Indian independence brought political chaos to Britain. Throughout, Churchill learned the lessons that would prepare him for the storm to come, and as the 1930's began, he readied himself for the coming battle against Nazism--an evil the world had never before seen.
