As per the title really, preferably in the realm of foreign affairs, politics or what not but any books youve enjoyed id been keen to hear recommended
Alas, the Amazon best sellers lists are beyond useless, Michelle/Barrack Obamas books appearing in their IR lists for some bizarre reason along with other odd choices.

Some suggestions from my recently-read shelf:

Mindf*ck: Inside Cambridge Analytica’s Plot to Break the World - Christopher Wylie

Fire and Fury - Michael Wolff (although I suspect, like many people, you may already have read this)

Gun Baby Gun - Iain Overton

Billion Dollar Whale - Tom Wright & Bradley Hope

The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War - Maria Mitchell & Thomas Mitchell

At best, most of these are only minimally related to your specified subject area, but I found them all to be thoroughly enjoyable NF reads.
Hope you find that you enjoy some of them!

Little Bee is a really moving and harrowing book. A must read.

Abolition of Britain- Peter Hitchens
The Establishment - Owen Jones
The strange Death of Europe- Douglas Murray

If you're interested in what went on under Corbyns Labour read Left Out

Tim Shipman's Account of Brexit and the May Ministry is pretty good.

If you're after something s but more philosophical I would highly recommend:

Mere Christianity by CS Lewis
As well as Starship Troopers (it's quite different to the film)

....

Also I would recommend any guy read The Rational Male by Rollo Tommassi which deals with masculinity and gender issues.

"WHYS?: A collection of answers to possible questions" by Sanu Campan


Do we exist ? Do we think ? Are we alone ? Are we real ? Are we simulated ? Do we create ? Do we wonder ? There are many questions disturbing many people, making them looking for bad, good or wise answers. The more questions we have, the more the world progresses.

It’s a book that strives to answer questions each of us thinks about, and to which we try to answer. And if we can't, we're looking for these answers. Sometimes we find them in books. This is one of them, a book about existential curiosities perceived by an average analytical man.
