All Out War - The Full Story of How Brexit Sank Britain's Political Class


Hardback 22,38 € 'I can't imagine a more even-handed or better sourced, all points-of-view account of the biggest story in British politics since WWII ...A fine book' ANDREW MARR, Sunday Times' Tim Shipman's dispatches from the political front line are a must read' NICK ROBINSON The first book to tell the full story of how and why Britain voted to leave the EU. Based on unrivalled access to all the key politicians and their advisors - including Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, George Osborne, Nigel Farage and Dominic Cummings, the mastermind of Vote Leave - Shipman has written a political history that reads like a thriller, and offers a gripping, day-by-day account of what really happened behind-the-scenes in Downing Street, both Leave campaigns, the Labour Party, Ukip and Britain Stronger in Europe. Shipman gives his readers a ringside seat on how decisions were made, mistakes justified and betrayals perpetrated. Filled with stories, anecdotes and juicy leaks the book does not seek to address the rights and wrongs of Brexit but to explore how and why David Cameron chose to take the biggest political gamble of his life and explain why he lost. This is a story of calculation, attempted coups, individuals torn between principles and loyalty. All the events are here - from David Cameron's pledge to hold a referendum, through to the campaign itself, his resignation as prime minister, the betrayals and rivalries that occurred during the race to find his successor to the arrival of Theresa May in Downing Street as Britain's second female prime minister. All Out War is a book about leaders and their closest aides, the decisions they make and how and why they make them, as well as how they feel when they turn out to be wrong. It is about men who make decisions that are intellectually consistent and - by their own measure - morally sound that are simultaneously disastrous for themselves and those closest to them. It is about how doing what you know has worked before doesn't always work again. Most of all it is about asking the question: how far are you prepared to go to win?

Fall Out


By the bestselling author of All Out War, shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2017 The unmissable account of politics covering Theresa May’s time as PM through to the end of the election campaign. Stuffed to the brim with revelation and explanation of political debates and arguments and a superb follow-up to All Out War ‘May you live in interesting times’ says the proverbial Chinese curse. And it is difficult to think of a recent period in which politics have been so unpredictable and fast-changing. As Political Editor of the Sunday Times, Tim Shipman has been at the forefront of it all. His book of last year, All Out War has become the book on the 2016 Referendum campaign. With unprecedented access to all key players on all sides, the book was hailed on publication as ‘unquestionably, the book of the year’ and ‘stonkingly good’, it is ‘hard to imagine a better first draft of history’. Shipman’s writing is noted for its grasp of human drama as well as his intimate understanding of the political arguments and differences at stake. Fall Out continues the story of British politics from the entry of Theresa May into Downing Street as Prime Minister through to the end of the general election campaign – and its aftermath. Written with his trademark wit and access to sources no one else has, this book takes all who read it to the heart of the political drama that is unravelling every day before us as Britain tries to work out its new place in the world post Brexit.
