Tory MPs' summer reading lists

An interesting list published by The Times, showing which bookd David Cameron has recommended Conservative MPs read over the summer break. It's a pretty solid political list, but also with lots about the conflict in Iraq. I can't find lists for the other parties; not sure if they produce or publish them.

Here's the first twelve:

Terror and Consent: The War for the Twenty-First Century, Philip Bobbitt
Tony’s Ten Years: Memories of the Blair Administration, Adam Boulton

Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, Robert Cialdini
Muqtada al-Sadr and the Fall of Iraq, Patrick Cockburn

Empires of the Sea: The Final Battle for the Mediterranean 1521-1580, Roger Crowley

Boris v Ken: How Boris Johnson Won London, Giles Edwards and Jonathan Isaby

Rivals: How the Power Struggle Between China, India and Japan will Shape our Next Decade, Bill Emmott

Munich: The 1938 Appeasement Crisis, David Faber
A Million Bullets: The Real Diary of the British Army in Afghanistan, James Fergusson
A Political Suicide: The Conservatives’ Voyage into the Wilderness, Norman Fowler

A Choice of Enemies: America Confronts the Middle East, Laurence Freedman

Fixing Failed States: A Framework for Rebuilding a Fractured World, Ashraf Ghani and Clare Lockhart

List continues here.

Influence: The Psycology of Persuasion looks quite interesting, despite the self-help style cover.
