The Nature of the Beast by Louise Penny NOTE: A limited number of signed copies are available. First come - first served!

Stephen Harper by John Ibbitson As one of the important prime ministers in the life of our nation, Stephen Harper has reshaped Canada into a more conservative country, a transformation that his opponents tacitly admit will never be reversed. He has made government smaller, justice tougher, and provinces more independent, whether they want to be or not.
Armada by Ernest Kline Zack Lightman has spent his life dreaming. Dreaming that the real world could be a little more like the countless science-fiction books, movies, and videogames he’s spent his life consuming. Dreaming that one day, some fantastic, world-altering event will shatter the monotony of his humdrum existence and whisk him off on some grand space-faring adventure.
Avenue of Spies by Alex Kershaw The leafy Avenue Foch, one of the most exclusive residential streets in Nazi-occupied France, was Paris's hotbed of daring spies, murderous secret police, amoral informers, and Vichy collaborators. So when American physician Sumner Jackson, who lived with his wife and young son Phillip at Number 11, found himself drawn into the Liberation network of the French resistance, he knew the stakes were impossibly high.

Britain's Empire by Richard Gott

Britains_EmpireSome historians in recent years have promoted the British Empire as a force for good. Richard Gott's new book, Britain's Empire: Resistance, Repression and Revolt, criticises the widely held belief that the British Empire was an imaginative and civilizing enterprise.
Gott reveals a history of systemic repression and almost perpetual violence, showing how British rule was imposed as a military operation and maintained as a military dictatorship. For colonized peoples, the experience was a horrific one, he says, of slavery, famine, battle and extermination. But, he argues, the Empire's oppressed peoples did not go quietly into this good night. Wherever Britain tried to plant its flag, it met with opposition. From Ireland to India, from the American colonies to Australia, Gott traces the rebellions and resistance of subject peoples whose all-but-forgotten stories are excluded from traditional accounts of empire. He argues that the British Empire provided a blueprint for the annihilation of peoples in twentieth-century Europe, and that its leaders must rank alongside the dictators of the twentieth century as authors of crimes against humanity on an infamous scale.
