This time last week we were getting ready for what was a very special launch for ‘From Syria With Love’ at Waterstones in Brighton. The highlight of the night was a live video chat with a couple of the children living in the Al Abrar refugee camp in Lebanon, featured in the book (pictured below is Bayan).
So now it’s officially launched, you can get your copy here!

As we start to digest another transformative political shock, it’s an appropriate moment to announce our next title – which tries to make sense of the last one.
‘Explaining Cameron’s Catastrophe’, to be released in January 2017, is the next in the popular election series by Sir Robert Worcester, Roger Mortimore, Paul Baines and Mark Gill.
It will use expert analyses of hundreds of surveys and focus groups run by Ipsos MORI to make sense of the UK’s 2016 EU referendum: how we got here; the context, content and process; lessons from 1975; what remain did wrong; why the leave campaign was so successful; voters attitudes; and the aftermath. They also show what the 2016 referendum result, and life without the EU, means for the future of the UK.
SIR ROBERT WORCESTER is the founder of Ipsos MORI. ROGER MORTIMORE is Director of Political Analysis at Ipsos MORI and Professor of Public Opinion and Political Analysis at King’s College London. PAUL BAINES is Professor of Political Marketing at Cranfield University and a specialist in the application of marketing in politics. MARK GILL advises governments and organisations around the world on public opinion research.
Alastair Stewart, OBE, said of the previous title in the series: “Another masterpiece from the Master, making sense of psephology in an accessible and well-written fashion. Apart from getting the story right, he also makes a valuable contribution to understanding why the ‘numbers game’ is difficult, and why it matters.”
Now we just need one explaining President Trump…

We would like to say a huge thank you to Nikita Austen, who produced this brilliant cover for From Syria With Love.
This cover is particularly special as it actually incorporates artwork from Kawthar, one of the children living in the Al Abrar refugee camp featured in the book, which is displayed at From Syria With Love‘s exhibitions – and which has become one of their most iconic pieces.
Below you can see some of the initial designs Nikita submitted when we embarked on the project – it was a tough choice!
The proceeds of this book will go directly to the charity ‘From Syria With Love’ to support the children of the Al Abrar camp featured in this book, as well as others across Syria and Lebanon.
