The Millenium Project Bookshop

This is a collection of books related to the various categories in The Millenium Project.

There is also a list of books which are not recommended. These are by authors featured elsewhere on the site or deal with topics mentioned here. There will not be many of them, and they are here because I don't want to be accused of ignoring opposing points of view and, as people are going to buy them, I rather like the irony of the situation anyway.

Book of the Week

Snake Oil and Other Preoccupations Snake Oil and Other Preoccupations by John Diamond. John Diamond died on March 2nd, 2001. He was one of Britain's most prolific journalists, columnists and broadcasters, having worked for most of the national papers and presented numerous radio and television series. For seven years he wrote an immensely popular weekly column in The Times which, since his diagnosis with cancer, was given over to following that disease's progress.

At the time of his death, he had completed six chapters of what was to be "an uncomplimentary look at the world of complementary medicine". These chapters, based on his own experience and on researched fact, are both personal and poignant, hard hitting and controversial, tackling the issues raised by alternative medicine with total candour and his usual wit.

Including a selection of articles and his columns from The Times, the Jewish Chronicle and other publications, Snake Oil and Other Preoccupations, compiled and edited by Dominic Lawson, contains the best of John's writing.
