The Shorter Wisden is a compelling distillation of what's best in its bigger brother – and the 2017 edition of Wisden is crammed, as ever, with the best writing in the game. Available from all major eBook retailers, Wisden's digital version includes the influential Notes by the Editor, all the front-of-book articles, including Matthew Engel looking back at 60 years of Test Match Special, Derek Pringle revealing the secrets of ball-tampering, and Gideon Haigh exploring the evolution of the six. There are also superb pieces by Rob Smyth, Vic Marks and Tanya Aldred, plus reviews, obituaries and all England's Tests from the 2016 season. In an age of snap judgments, Wisden's authority and integrity are more important than ever. Yet again this year's edition is truly a "must-have†? for every cricket fan. "There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's obviously Wisden" Andrew Baker in the Daily Telegraph @WisdenAlmanack

Raise a glass for an Anzac. Run for an Anzac. Camp under the stars for an Anzac. Is there anything Australians won’t do to keep the Anzac legend at the centre of our national story? But standing firm on the other side of the Anzac enthusiasts is a chorus of critics claiming that the appetite for Anzac is militarising our history and indoctrinating our children. So how are we to make sense of this struggle over how we remember the Great War? Anzac, the Unauthorised Biography cuts through the clamour to provide a much-needed historical perspective on the battle over Anzac. It traces how, since 1915, Australia’s memory of the Great War has declined and surged, reflecting the varied and complex history of the Australian nation itself. Most importantly, it asks why so many Australians persist with the fiction that the nation was born on 25 April 1915.

'An astonishing work of research, detail and revelation. Bulging with information, packed with nuggets.' John Etheridge, Sun 'Superbly researched... His eye for detail never wavers. It’s a pleasure to read.' Vic Marks, Observer 'The Cricket Book of the Year: Dauntingly comprehensive and surprisingly light-footed.' Simon Briggs, Daily Telegraph England: The Biography is the most comprehensive account of the England cricket team that has ever been published, taking the reader into the heart of the action and the team dynamics that have helped shape their success, or otherwise. It is now 140 years since England first played Test match cricket and, for much of that time, it has struggled to perform to the best of its capabilities. In the early years, amateurs would pick and choose which matches and tours they would play; subsequently, the demands of the county game - and the petty jealousies that created - would prevent many from achieving their best. It was only in the 1990s that central contracts were brought in, and Team England began to receive the best possible support from an ever-increasing backroom team. But cricket isn't just about structures, it depends like no other sport on questions of how successful the captain is in motivating and leading his team, and how well different personalities and egos are integrated and managed in the changing room. From Joe Root and Alastair Cook back to Mike Atherton, Mike Brearley and Ray Illingworth, England captains have had a heavy influence on proceedings. Recent debates over Kevin Pietersen were nothing new, as contemporaries of W.G.Grace would doubtless recognise. As England play their 1000th Test, this is a brilliant and unmissable insight into the ups and downs of that story.

Steve Waugh's career is undisputedly the stuff of legend. As a player and as a captain he has reached the pinnacle of Australian cricket. His side has been compared to Bradman's Invincibles, and the media coverage following his retirement from Test cricket was reignited by his controversial naming as Australian of the Year for 2004. Many though, including Jack Egan, have long wondered about the private man behind the public face of Australia's most successful Test captain. For all the media coverage, including his own tour diaries, Waugh guards his privacy fiercely. This unauthorised biography by a respected cricketing writer and documentary-maker is not only a tribute to a player who has given the world some of the most magic moments in recent cricket, but also an honest exploration of the man himself. Who is Steve Waugh? Jack Egan traces Waugh's career from his shaky debut on the international scene to his mastery of field placing and attacking Test cricket, revisiting a few of his key innings along the way. This is a comprehensive and objective picture of one of Australia's most successful sportsmen, his successes and failures, his effect for good, and bad, on the game on which the Australian team currently has such a stranglehold.

Ted Hughes, Poet Laureate, was one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. He was one of Britain’s most important poets. With an equal gift for poetry and prose, he was also a prolific children’s writer and has been hailed as the greatest English letterwriter since John Keats. His magnetic personality and insatiable appetite for friendship, love, and life also attracted more scandal than any poet since Lord Byron. His lifelong quest to come to terms with the suicide of his first wife, Sylvia Plath, is the saddest and most infamous moment in the public history of modern poetry. Hughes left behind a more complete archive of notes and journals than any other major poet, including thousands of pages of drafts, unpublished poems, and memorandum books that make up an almost complete record of Hughes’s inner life, which he preserved for posterity. Renowned scholar Jonathan Bate has spent five years in the Hughes archives, unearthing a wealth of new material. His book offers, for the first time, the full story of Hughes’s life as it was lived, remembered, and reshaped in his art.
