Обложка книги Katyn 1940 Katyn 1940

 Автор: Maresch Eugenia

The mass murder of 22,000 Poles by the Soviet NKVD at Katyn is one of the most shocking events of the Second World War and its political implications are still being felt today. This book draws on intelligence reports, witness statements, memoranda and briefing papers of diplomats who dealt with the Katyn massacre.

The bitter dispute is ongoing between the Russian and Polish governments, to declassify the rest of the documents and concede to genocide perpetrated by the Soviets. British “Most Secret” files reveal that Katyn was considered as a provocative incident, which might break political alliance with the Soviets. The “suspension of judgment” policy of the British government hid for more than half a century a deceitful diplomacy of Machiavellian proportions.

Katyn 1940 draws on intelligence reports, previously unpublished documents, witness statements, memoranda, and briefing papers of diplomats and civil servants of various echelons, who dealt with the Katyn massacre up to the present day to expose the true hypocrisy of the British and American attitude to the massacre.

Обложка книги Klaus Fuchs Klaus Fuchs

 Автор: Moss Norman

‘Moss went to great pains to study all the documents relating to Fuchs and interviewed everyone who had contact with him. His spy thriller is better than fiction.’

London Review of Books

German-born Klaus Fuchs escaped the Nazi regime in 1933 and sought refuge in Britain.

Regarded as a genius, the introverted physics student hid his communist beliefs from his peers.

The scientist’s brilliance led to his recruitment, by the British, to develop the secret atom bomb project. At this point, Fuchs turned spy and began to pass on nuclear research secrets to the Soviet Regime.

As time passed, the refugee’s sense of loyalty to his friends and Britain led to him to doubt his actions and he reported less information to Russia.

The British arrested Fuchs in 1950, after the FBI had decoded his Soviet messages. In August 1988, the Russians acknowledged for the first time the key role that Fuchs played in the building of their first atomic bomb.

Norman Moss gives detailed insight into Fuchs’ extraordinary story, examining his role in the most momentous historical development of this century, his contacts with the Soviet intelligence apparatus, his friendships, the twists and turns of his mind and conscience, and the intelligence work that led to his arrest.

Fuchs’s dilemmas reflect some of the fundamental moral and political conflicts of our time.

Recommended for fans of Ben Macintyre and .

Обложка книги Koba the Dread Koba the Dread


A brilliant weave of personal involvement, vivid biography and political insight, Koba the Dread is the successor to Martin Amis’s award-winning memoir, Experience.

Koba the Dread captures the appeal of one of the most powerful belief systems of the 20th century—one that spread through the world, both captivating it and staining it red. It addresses itself to the central lacuna of 20th-century thought: the indulgence of Communism by the intellectuals of the West. In between the personal beginnings and the personal ending, Amis gives us perhaps the best one-hundred pages ever written about Stalin: Koba the Dread, Iosif the Terrible.

The author’s father, Kingsley Amis, though later reactionary in tendency, was a “Comintern dogsbody” (as he would come to put it) from 1941 to 1956. His second-closest, and then his closest friend (after the death of the poet Philip Larkin), was Robert Conquest, our leading Sovietologist whose book of 1968, The Great Terror, was second only to Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago in undermining the USSR. The present memoir explores these connections.

Stalin said that the death of one person was tragic, the death of a million a mere “statistic.” Koba the Dread, during whose course the author absorbs a particular, a familial death, is a rebuttal of Stalin’s aphorism.

Обложка книги Krótka historia Anglii Krótka historia Anglii

 Автор: Chesterton Gilbert Keith

Krótka historia Anglii to książka ujmująca dzieje Wielkiej Brytanii w kontekście cywilizacyjnym, religijnym i kulturowym. Wielu mieszkańcom Wysp Brytyjskich pomogła odpowiedzieć na pytanie: kim naprawdę jesteśmy my, Anglicy? „Nie trzeba długich i trudnych badań dla dowiedzenia się, że ziemianin nie jest opatem, choć dom jego nosi miano opactwa. Nie trzeba zawiłych rozumowań dla wywnioskowania, że teren zwany „gromadzkim” należał niegdyś do gromady. Różnice w poglądach nie tyczą więc samych faktów, lecz znaczenia tych faktów, a ocena tego znaczenia wiąże się z krytyczną oceną całego rozumienia dziejów”. (Z przedmowy G.K. Chestertona)
