In the loop by Armando Iannucci( visu )
31 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,149 libraries worldwide
When Britain's Secretary Of State For International Development Simon Foster states, in the midst of a radio interview, that a war in the Middle East in "unforeseeable," it doesn't follow his government's "line" on events. The problem is that war is not unforeseeable, what with America itching to invade somewhere in the Middle East and the British government loyally following. Unfortunately, Foster suspects nothing about the firestorm to follow. By the next day, Foster is the target of the Prime Minister's director of communications Malcolm Tucker, and the focus of attention for anti-war American diplomat Karen Clarke. After US General George Miller and State Department hawk Linton Barwick jump into the mix, Foster's mountain of an ill-chosen remark turns into a series of festering molehills. In the end, one thing is clear: grave matters involving global power cannot be separated from the pettiness of democratic governance, which is impelled by careerism, vanity, moral compromise and--at least in London--by ear-singeing profanity

Love, sex and other foreign policy goals by Jesse Armstrong( Sound Recording )
10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
It's 1994, and a gang of good-hearted young people are setting off for Bosnia in a Ford Transit van with a sack of rice and a half-written play to try to stop the war. Andrew would love to stop the war. He has one of the best personal private foreign policies of anyone working on a building site in the North West area. He feels everyone should have a foreign policy, really. But what he'd like to do - maybe even more than stopping the war - is sleep with Penny, who he believes to be the love of his life. But does Penny like him? Or does she love Simon, his rival, an irritatingly authentic Geordie poet? Or Shannon, the fiercely inspiring American leader of the play troupe? It could take a while to work out, as the gang cross Europe and head, via newly-recognized Croatia, into the war zone
Black mirror ( visu )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
"Black mirror is a drama series from Charlie Brooker consisting of three separate self-contained stories. The National anthem is a political thriller in which the Prime Minister faces a huge dilemma and has to choose between bowing to the pressure of public opinion or following his own moral compass. 15 million merits is a satire on entertainment shows. In this world, the only way to escape drudgery is to enter the "Hot Shot" talent show and just hope you can impress the judges. The Entire history of you is set in an alternate reality where everyone has access to a system which records everything they do, see or hear. You need never forget a face, holiday or night out again... but is that a good thing?"--Container
