Review: I can say unequivocally that this is one of the best books I have ever read. It will stay with me forever. The subject matter was sometimes hard to read and to hear the heartbreaking struggles of hospital staff, nursing home staff other front line health care works made the pandemic all the more real. The book brings a realness people need to see and hear to understand the gravity of the situation we have all been in. Richard has managed somehow to interlace the cold clinical reality of the pandemic with the personal and emotional destruction which it wrought. It is an excellent book, excellently written and a book everyone who has endured this pandemic should read.

  • Waterstones Emergency State

    Price: £14.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: On 26 March 2020, a new law appeared. In eleven pages it locked down tens of millions of people, confined us to our homes, banned socialising, closed shops, gyms, pubs, places of worship. It restricted our freedoms more than any other law in history, justified by the rapid spread of a deadly new virus. You may have expected such a law to be fiercely debated in Parliament. But it wasn't debated at all. A state of emergency was declared, meaning the law came into force the moment it was signed. The emergency was supposed to be short but lasted for 763 days, allowing ministers to bring in, by decree over 100 new laws restricting freedoms more than any in history - laws that were almost never debated, changed at a whim and increasingly confused the public. Meanwhile, behind the doors of Downing Street, officials and even the Prime Minister broke the very laws they had created. This book tells the startling story of the state of emergency that brought about an Emergency State. A wake-up call from one of the UK's leading human rights barristers, Emergency State shows us why we must never take our rights for granted.

  • Waterstones Corona, Climate, Chronic Emergency

    Price: £10.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The economic and social impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been unprecedented. Governments have spoken of being at war and find themselves forced to seek new powers in order to maintain social order and prevent the spread of the virus. This is often exercised with the notion that we will return to normal as soon as we can. What if that is not possible? Secondly, if the state can mobilize itself in the face of an invisible foe like this pandemic, it should also be able to confront visible dangers such as climate destruction with equal force. In Corona, Climate, Chronic Emergency, leading environmental thinker, Andreas Malm demands that this war-footing state should be applied on a permanent basis to the ongoing climate front line. He offers proposals on how the climate movement should use this present emergency to make that case. There can be no excuse for inaction any longer.
