06.03.12 | Charlotte Williams
Palgrave Macmillan has acquired world rights for an undisclosed sum for Going South: Why Britain will have a Third World Economy by 2014 by economics journalists Larry Elliott and Dan Atkinson.
Commissioning editor Taiba Batool bought world rights in the title through Ivan Mulcahy of Mulcahy Conway Associates, with plans to publish as a paperback original on 14th June, priced £14.99. Elliott is economics editor of the Guardian and Atkinson is economics editor at the Mail on Sunday.
Batool said: "This is such an important book as Britain is a country in crisis and the time for quick fixes is over, Going South explains how and why Britain is in decline and it should be required reading for anyone wondering what the future holds for us as a nation."
