Floating: A Life Regained

Hardback
by Joe Minihane
"Water has always had the magical power to cure..." writes Roger Deakin in his bestseller Waterlog. This reasoning served as the inspiration for Minihane to take his new obsession with wild swimming to greater heights, with the goal of swimming in every river, lake, lido and bay which Deakin visited on his own trip in the mid-1990s. But beyond his plans to use the journey as a means to see and experience th...

Of Orcas and Men: What Killer Whales Can Teach Us

Paperback
by Neiwert, David
The orca is one of Earth's most intelligent animals. Remarkably sophisticated, they have languages and cultures and even long-term memories. Their capacity for echolocation is nothing short of a sixth sense. Despite their label as `killer whales' they are often benign and gentle, which makes the story of the captive-orca industry and the endangerment of their population around the world that much more tragi...

One Kiss or Two?: In Search of The Perfect Greeting

Hardback
by Scott, Andy
Every encounter between two people begins with a greeting. Be it a quick `Hello!' or the somewhat longer and gracious `Sula manchwanta galunga omugobe!', shaking hands or shaking, well, rather more private parts of our anatomy, we have been doing it many times daily for thousands of years. It should really be the most straightforward thing in the world, but this apparently simple act is fraught with complic...

The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life

Hardback
by Partanen, Anu
At a 2012 conference on social mobility, Ed Miliband said: `If you want the American dream, go to Finland.' For decades, the country best known for opportunity had been the United States, but that crown has now been taken by our Nordic neighbours. When journalist Anu Partanen moved from her Scandinavian home to the US in 2008, she quickly went from being a confident, successful professional to a wary, self-...

We Were the Future

Hardback
by Neeman, Yael
The kibbutzim are collective settlements in Israel which have been written about extensively over the years, and are praised as the only example in world history of entire communities attempting, voluntarily, to live in total equality. Conceived as a socialist utopia by its early pioneers, the kibbutz was a radical experiment in communal living, gender equality, economic egalitarianism, and the reorganisati...

The War is in the Mountains: Violence in the World's High Places

Hardback
by Matloff, Judith
Mountainous regions are home to only ten percent of the world's population yet host a strikingly disproportionate share of the world's conflicts. Mountains provide a natural refuge for those who want to elude authority, and their remoteness has allowed archaic practices to persist well into our globalized era. As Judith Matloff shows, the result is a combustible mix those in the lowlands cannot afford to ig...
