Atlantic to publish Lib Dem leaders Cable and Swinson

24th July 2017

Atlantic Books is proud to be publishing books by both the newly appointed Leader of the Liberal Democrats Sir Vince Cable and the new Deputy Leader Jo Swinson in the next twelve months.

Atlantic has already published three works of non-fiction by Cable: the Sunday Times bestselling The Storm (2009) and its follow-up After the Storm (2015), and his memoir Free Radical (2010). On 7 September this year Atlantic’s Corvus imprint will publish his debut novel, Open Arms. The political thriller circles from Whitehall to the slums of Mumbai. Cable’s sweeping tale combines unrivalled political detail with international intrigue, desire, and the quest for power.

In February 2018, Atlantic will publish Equal Power by Jo Swinson, an exploration of why power is the root of gender inequality and a practical call-to-arms that challenges that persistent inequality and makes the case that everyone has the power to create change.

Will Atkinson, Managing Director of Atlantic Books, says:

“It’s no coincidence that the two most senior members of the Liberal Democrats are being published by Atlantic. We have a strong heritage of publishing books by high-profile figures from across the political spectrum including Alistair Darling and David Willetts, as well as recent political commentary by Steve Richards and P. J. O’Rourke. We’re proud of our record in this area, and look forward to publishing both Open Arms and Equal Power in the next year.”
