Gibson Square books was launched in 2001. Gibson Square specialises in books that are able to contribute to a current debate. Each title is supported by a vigorous marketing campaign to provide a broad platform for the book and its ideas in the booktrade.
Gibson Square is the publisher of Blowing up Russia by Alexander Litvinenko, the former Russian spy poisoned with Polonium 210 in London. It investigates the apartment bombings in Moscow that launched the political career of Vladimir Putin, the man who had been Litvinenko's commanding officer.In 2016, the UK government's Litvinenko Inquiry by Sir Robert Owen found that President Putin had 'probably' ordered the assassination. Rights to this important book were sold to over 16 countries.
