1947 chosen as one of the best books of 2018

6 December 2018

Elisabeth Åsbrink’s 1947, Where now begins has been chosen as one of the best books of the year 2018 by American NPR (National Public Radio).

From Nancy Pearls review:

“It’s just one of those books that makes you want to major in history. It is one of the best books, certainly the best nonfiction book, that I’ve read recently. I think the subtitle, Where Now Begins, really speaks to one of the things that makes this book so important: The echoes of 1947 are resonating very, very clearly today.”

They Can’t Stop Us – out in Sweden

28 October 2018

The gripping narrative non-fiction, They Can’t Stop Us by Mattias Beijmo just hit Swedish book stores.

It is a book on what might be described as a new Western arms export industry, in which billions are at stake, and Syria the perfect testing ground for products being launched in the global market.

Writer Mattias Beijmo tells the true story of two people whose fates throw light on surveillance that we take for granted on a daily basis without really understanding it and the consequences it may bring. Backed up by thorough research and extensive interviews, he tells a story which in every instance proves that fact surpasses fiction. ‘They Can’t Stop Us’ is as gripping as it is enlightening, a book for all who can see a little camera watching them as they look up from the monitor, while reading this text.
