Hodder & Stoughton to publish The Presidents and Kings and Queens by Iain Dale


Following the success of The Prime Ministers, published last November to great acclaim, chosen as a Times Political Book of the Year and winner of the Parliamentary Book Award for the Best Political Book by a Non-Parliamentarian, Hodder & Stoughton are to publish two new books edited by Iain Dale.

The Presidents, to be published on the anniversary of the US elections in November 2021, will follow the same engaging formula as The Prime Ministers, with an essay on each of the 46 American presidents written by a range of academics, historians, political journalists and serving politicians. Each contributor has been carefully chosen based on expert knowledge of their subjects and personal connections, providing analysis of their subject’s successes, failures and influence. Any hagiographical writing is shunned in favour of a ‘warts and all’ perspective on each President and the impact they’ve had on US politics – past, present and future.

The second title, Kings and Queens, to be published in 2023, will also be written by a variety of contributors.

Hodder acquired World English language rights from Northbank’s Martin Redfern.
