With Fire and Fury, Wolff defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in Siege, he has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side.
A stunningly fresh narrative that begins just as Trump’s second year as president is getting underway, and ends with the delivery of the Mueller report, Siege reveals an administration that is perpetually beleaguered by investigations and a president who is increasingly volatile, erratic, and exposed.
Margaret Heffernan on why we ignore the obvious at our peril
Wilful Blindness was first published in 2011; the Financial Times called it one of the most important books of the decade. Largely inspired by the banking crisis and the crisis in the Catholic Church in Ireland, the book has gone on to be required reading in many institutions around the world: in finance, manufacturing, accounting, government and the law.
Margaret has now updated the book as events – Grenfell Tower, Rotherham, Wells Fargo, General Motors, VW, Brexit and Trump – keep so resoundingly proving her thesis. The new edition includes material on these and other examples, together with a new section on whistleblowers, antidotes and prevention.

What is America’s role in a changing international landscape?
