The Bodley Head is dedicated to agenda-setting non-fiction by our most original thinkers and gifted communicators: books to help us understand the world and bend it in a new direction. We publish global leaders and renowned dissidents, path-breaking reporters and esteemed historians, Nobel Prize-winning scientists and the voices and visionaries who will shape our future.
Our list embraces all subjects, from nature to current affairs, ancient history to cutting-edge technology, from the urgent issues of the day to the timeless questions of how to live. Our books’ approaches are as various as their perspectives: immersive narratives and intimate memoirs sit alongside definitive biographies and epic histories, powerful manifestos and transporting reportage.
Whatever the subject and whatever the form, our authors match bold thinking with superb writing, and their books expand minds and enhance lives.
