Me, My Dog and Humanity: A History of Coexistence Between Species
by Tiina Raevaara

Has humanity become so powerful through its own merits alone? Or do other species deserve a thanks as well?

  • The Finnish answer to Yuval Noah Harari and Rutger Bregman!

In the Autumn of 2018, biologist and award-winning author Tiina Raevaara found herself exhausted and anguished. She did, however, find comfort in the company of her dog, Igor. She started pondering the reasons for her exhaustion and, simultaneously, the evolution of the human species and its relation to other animals.

In her new book Me, My Dog and Humanity, Raevaara compellingly describes the coexistence between humans and animals, both personally and from the perspective of humankind. The domesticated dog is a much older creation of humankind than agriculture, religion or even writing. Mapping out the mutual journey between humans and dogs, Raevaara sheds light on the most fundamental essences of humanity and its relationship with nature.

The Finnish Factor: Kekkonen, Kennedy, Khrushchev and the Cold War
by Gordon F. Sander

With the fate of his country and relations between superpowers in the balance, what is the President of Finland to do?

  • A gripping and lucid account of one of the lesser-known crises of the Cold War

In the fall of 1961 in Finland, the USSR and the US were squaring off for a potentially explosive confrontation over the Kremlin’s desire to maintain its sphere of influence over that country. The Note Crisis, the events leading up to it, and the three figures who were at the center of it—Urho Kekkonen, the Machiavellian president of Finland; Nikita Khrushchev, the feisty Soviet premier; and John Kennedy, the US president—comprise the climax of Gordon Sander’s groundbreaking book.

The biography, which focuses on Kekkonen’s pivotal first term as President, is based on three years of research, and includes exclusive interviews with Khrushchev’s late son Sergey, Kekkonen’s former chiefs of staff and President of Finland, Sauli Niinistö.
