    A former Daily Telegraph Book of the Year, Macqueen's survey of 'the things they didn't want you to know' exposes the completely harmless, if somewhat ridiculous, foibles of politicians and royalty that have been locked away in state archives (eg. Mrs Thatcher's thoughts on the cost of ironing boards), but also uncovers hair-raising documents about topics such as fall-out shelters for city-dwellers ('beyond our resources').
