I've enjoyed all David Kynaston's forays into the recent past, and this is no exception. It's not just a history of the politics of the Macmillan era, but a social history full of detail and colour, anecdotes and revealing vignettes, of a time when Britain was changing rapidly, when Prime Minister Harold Macmillan told the assembled members of his Conservative party, 'Most of our people have never had it so good.'

The Profumo affair fascinated just about every adolescent boy in the UK back in the early 60s, and I doubt that many of us forget the risqué photographs of Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice Davies that were splashed all over the place. This is a thorough and comprehensive look at the affair from all sides, and a fascinating view of the times. It makes for compelling reading.

This is a good book to read this year, in the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence. If you’re Jamaican it’s a tough read, but an important one. It captures the creative brilliance of the island as well as the painful legacy of European and American involvement in our Caribbean destinies.

Wellum was the youngest pilot to take part in the Battle of Britain - he was just 19. This book, written decades afterwards, is for me the most honest and vivid to come out of those epic weeks in the late summer of 1940. His direct writing style places you in the cockpit alongside the boy he once was.

This was one of the main sources of inspiration in my years as a young, aspiring, student photographer. Having recently discovered the language of (predominately black&white) reportage photography, I was in awe of Salgado's ability to deal with the lives and livelihoods of workers around the world with such compassion and celebration.

This is about as clear an account as you'll get of the Second World War. You get the big picture, the generals, politicians, strategies, battles, but you also get the scale of human suffering, the courage and the cruelty, the stories of ordinary men and women caught up in something beyond their comprehension.

Chinua Achebe died recently. He was by a long way Africa’s finest novelist, and a substantial figure in Nigeria. This book is his last, his account of the Biafran war, when his people, the Igbo, suffered terribly. It is also a fascinating account of his upbringing and literary education.
