Nemesis Alcibiades and the Fall of Athens David Stuttard “Nemesis is a rich and rewarding biography, as thorough as it is bracing and as measured as it is entertaining. Stuttard is to be praised for capturing the complexity of both the man and the world he lived in with such sensitivity and clarity.” —Daisy Dunn, New Criterion £21.95

Pandora’s Box A History of the First World War Jörn Leonhard Translated by Patrick Camiller “Jörn Leonhard’s epic and magnificent work [is] unquestionably, for me, the best single-volume history of the war I have ever read ... it is the marshalling of facts and materials that is so impressive, and his knack of not including anything that fails to interest.” —Simon Heffer, Spectator Belknap Press | £28.95

Elements of Surprise Our Mental Limits and the Satisfactions of Plot Vera Tobin “Elements of Surprise is a fascinating analysis of an element of plot that we might just take too much for granted.” —Gail Marshall, Times Higher Education £25.95

The Devil’s Music How Christians Inspired, Condemned, and Embraced Rock ‘n’ Roll Randall J. Stephens “Christianity’s interweaving with the history of rock’n’roll might not always have been apparent. But that the two have indeed been locked together – in conflict as well as collusion – is the subject of this beautifully written, well-researched book.” —Clive Marsh, Times Higher Education £21.95
