A tale of border warfare, military and erotic, set in the twenty-third century, where the women rule the kingdom and the men play war games. This is the fictional memoir of Wat Dryhope - edited, annotated and commented upon. History has come to an end, war is regulated as if it's all a game. But Wat, the History Maker himself, does not play entirely by the rules, and when a woman, Delilah Puddock, joins the fray, this 'utopian' history is further enlivened. Alasdair Gray cleverly plays with the notion and writing of history, as well as perennial modern debates on war, sexism and society - entertaining and thought-provoking, this is a delightful satire illustrated throughout by the author.

Martin Luther King's public life lasted only 13 years - yet in that time, he changed the USA's attitude to civil rights forever and continues to inspire human rights movements today. Richard Reddie has written the first book on King since Barack Obama became US president and considers whether Obama is the fulfilment of "King's dream". Reddie seamlessly melds King's religious, social, political and racial ideas in ways that are understandable, yet sophisticated; and captures his legacy and impact on both sides of the Atlantic. Reddie uses copious photographs throughout to chronicle the great man's life and times. As the first Black Brit to write a book on Martin Luther King, he brings a fresh new perspective.

Do we make history or does history make us what we are? Do we allow our lives to be dictated by history or do we attempt to make our history the 'new' future; do we have an impact in history, and the future, or do we allow ourselves to be the 'victims' of the impact of history upon us, having the future shaped for us by others?Imagine that there are people out there who will make us part of their history, and make their future our future; world leaders, artists, authors, and scientists. But what of the ordinary people - in the neighbourhood, or that person in their car, passing you on the road? Is that person harbouring secrets that you could not begin to comprehend? What if that person had secrets that they are not aware of; secrets that could have a major impact on the lives of everyone, everywhere, throughout the whole of time?
