Autumn 2013 Catalogue


Welcome to our autumn 2013 catalogue. Whether you’re

looking for savvy business writing, musical musings, the best

of British humour or sporting excellence, we have something

here to tempt you.

Our lead title is Classic FM’s most ambitious publication yet.

A magisterial book of days, The Big Book of Classic FM packs

1,000 years of classical music into 366 days, with a page

dedicated to musical treats and tidbits for each day of the

year. Beautifully illustrated and produced and supported by a

major on-air advertising campaign, it is sure to be top of every

classical music lover’s Christmas wishlist.

Our business list continues to grow, with Out of the Blue by

antitrust lawyer Mike Pullen and risk consultant John Brodie

Donald. Perhaps best described as the businessman’s Black

Swan, it examines how unexpected events such as regulatory

intervention or cyber crime can destroy even the biggest, most

successful companies, and suggests how they can best react

in the face of such crises.

Dog lovers are catered for with Secrets of a Pet Nanny,

former diplomat Eileen Riley’s memoir about giving up a

jetset lifestyle in favour of looking after other people’s dogs.

By turns affectionate, witty and sincere, it’s a must-read.

Meanwhile sports fans can look forward to Hoppy on Golf, in

which veteran golf journalist John Hopkins brings together a

selection of his best writing from the last 35 years, as well

as the paperback edition of Andy Farrell’s award-winning

collection, The 100 Greatest Ever Golfers.

We hope you enjoy these, and more great new titles, as well

as our growing backlist, which features award-winning and

bestselling books from a range of genres.

Prices, covers and specifications are subject to change.

In Super Highway, maritime strategist and

former Rear Admiral Chris Parry argues that

in the second decade of the 21st century,

the sea is set to reclaim its status as the

world’s pre-eminent strategic medium.

Parry makes the case that the coming years

will witness a ‘scramble’ for the sea,

involving competition for oceanic resources

and the attempted political and economic

colonisation of large tracts of international

waters and shipping routes.

With space travel no longer on the agenda,

the sea (the physical equivalent of the

World Wide Web) is effectively the

world’s final undiscovered frontier and

the potential arena for a classic ‘Great

Game’ between the major powers and

developing states.

AUTHOR Chris Parry joined the Royal Navy as

a Seaman Officer in 1972. Promoted to Rear

Admiral in 2005, he then became the MOD’s

Director of Developments, Concepts and Doctrine.

He was appointed a CBE in 2004. Now retired

from the armed forces, he heads a company

which specializes in geo-strategic forecasting.

A celebration of the island,

real and imagined, barren

and beautiful, large and

small, and the story of

our planet

Ever since the dawn of human history,

islands have been at the heart of our desires

– and our fears. Drawing on anthropology,

literature, biology, art, philosophy and earth

science, Island tells the groundbreaking

story of humans and islands throughout

history, and celebrates islands as a central

part of the world we live in.

With a unique cross-disciplinary approach,

encompassing everything from the wonder

of an island’s flora and fauna, to the

geological roots of island formations, via

references to popular culture, poetry and

literature (including Prospero, Gulliver,

Robinson Crusoe and The Count of Monte

Cristo), Chamberlin tells the vivid and

absorbing tale of how islands have shaped

human history, society and culture and

celebrates islands for all their worth, whether

real or fictitious, as a central part of the

human narrative.

AUTHOR J. Edward Chamberlin is Professor Emeritus

of English and Comparative Literature at the

University of Toronto. He is a Fellow of the Royal

Society of Canada and has lectured around the

Laugh-out-loud stories

of canine antics from an

American diplomat turned


Aged 28, Eileen Riley had an enviably

glamorous life; her globe-trotting career

as a diplomat took her from the corridors

of power at the White House to postings

in Cameroon and Papua New Guinea, and

finally, London – where she decided to jack

it all in to become a professional dog-sitter.

As you do.

In fact her diplomatic skills were to prove

invaluable in her new career. Secrets of a

Pet Nanny is a fabulous and very funny

collection of tales about the dogs she has

looked after, from pedigree puppies to rare

Tibetan terriers. Riley is a true dog devotee

but that does not prevent her casting


a caustic eye over her charges – and their

devoted owners. Part dog memoir, part

outsider’s perspective on the eternal relationship

between the English and their

dogs, this is sure to appeal to animal-lovers

of all stripes.

AUTHOR Eileen Riley is a professional pet nanny

and journalist based in London. Born in America,

she took diplomatic postings in Cameroon,

Papua New Guinea and Washington, before

moving to London and quitting diplomacy in

favour of looking after other people’s dogs. She

lives in south west London with her family, and

regular canine guests.

A wincingly witty

compendium of the many

weird and wonderful words

and phrases only ever used

in newspapers

You may not recognise the name, but if

you have ever picked up a paper you’ll

have come across ‘journalese’. Essentially,

it covers words and phrases that are only

found in newspapers. How else would our

intrepid journalists be able to describe a

world in which late-night revellers go on

booze-fuelled rampages, where tots in peril

are saved by have-a-go heroes, and where

troubled stars lash out in foul-mouthed


When Rob Hutton began collecting examples

of journalese online, he provoked

a ‘Twitter storm’, and was ‘left reeling’ by

the ‘scores’ of examples that ‘flooded in’.

Romps, Tots and Boffins will catalogue the

highs and lows of this strange language,

celebrating the best examples (‘test-tube

baby’, ‘mad cow disease’), marvelling at the

quirky (‘boffins’, ‘frogmen’) and condemning

the worst (‘rant’, ‘snub’, ‘sirs’). It will be

a ‘must-read’ ‘page-turner’ that may ‘cause

a stir’, ‘fuel controversy’, or even ‘spark’

‘tough new rules’ in newsrooms.

AUTHOR Robert Hutton has been UK political correspondent

for Bloomberg since 2004; previously,

he worked at The Mirror and Financial Times. Arguably

his most notable contribution to journalism

has been the introduction of the ‘news sandwich’

to the political lexicon. He lives in south east London

with his wife and sons.

There have been many books written on

Gamesmanship is the art of winning.

gives examples of successful gamesmanship,

which continues to be practised by sportsmen

around the world.

When playing sports or games, there are

times when even the best of us can find ourselves

up against superior opponents, with

little hope of winning while playing within

the spirit of the game. Gamesmanship is the

practice of resorting to sly tactics that, while

of course remaining well within the rules,

might be considered a little underhand.

Stephen Potter’s classic manual is a

hilarious look at the ways to disrupt an

opponent’s rhythm, from throwaway remarks

to put them off to using body language to

induce overconfidence. His tongue-in-cheek

humour sublimely straight-faced, Potter


The ultimate in polite psychological

warfare, Gamesmanship will appeal to

any sportsman open to bending the rules –

without actually breaking them – in pursuit

of victory, and is a timeless comedy of

English manners.

Lucia on Holiday and Major Benjy are

recent additions to the Mapp and Lucia

canon, based on the immortal characters

first created by E.F. Benson. Perfect

reading for followers of Benson’s original

novels and sure to be equally loved by

new fans, these are pitch-perfect and

deliciously enjoyable social satires of an

England long gone but not forgotten. The

planned trilogy will be complete with the

publication of Au Reservoir in 2014.

Author Guy Fraser-Sampson is a bestselling

author and longstanding Mapp and Lucia fan.

His other books for Elliott & Thompson are

Cricket at the Crossroads and The Mess We’re In.

“Lucia is back! This is a wonderful

new adventure for our magnificent

heroine, written with all the style

and humour of Benson himself. A

triumph. Uno, due, tre … read it!”

Alexander McCall Smith

“More Mapp and Lucia – what

bliss! Major Benjy on the rampage

– what joy!”

Gyles Brandreth

“As you read Guy Fraser-Sampson’s

sinuous narrative and needle-sharp

dialogue, Tilling suddenly takes

shape all around you … Benson

himself would have loved this book,

and so will you”
