The Missing Lynx: The Past and Future of Britain's Lost Mammals by Ross Barnett
A fascinating look at the lives of some of the extinct megafauna of Ice-Age Britain and Europe - woolly mammmoth, cave hyena, aurochs and more - plus the possibilities of re-introduction, re-wilding, and even resurrection! An absolutely delightful book, written with wit, passion, and a bit of geekery:)

The Adventures of Maud West, Lady Detective: Secrets and Lies in the Golden Age of Crime by Susannah Stapleton
A thrilling and quirky account of the life and times of the eponymous detective, featuring runaway heiresses, drug dens, stolen jewels, and family secrets! In a standard biography the author is usually in the background, but here, in keeping with the flamboyant sleuth's own methods, Stapleton presents the work in the style of a lively detective novel, detailing her searches and surprises along the way.

On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal by Naomi Klein
A series of essays from the past decade outlining the horrors of climate change and its close connection with inequality and social justice issues, and putting forward simple, comprehensible arguements for solutions - the Green New Deal.

Permanent Record by Edward Snowden
An acute dissection of political abuses and one man's stand against them.
