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...

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-...

Squadron: Ending the African Slave Trade

Hardback
by Broich, John
Despite the British being early abolitionists, a significant slave trade remained down the east coast of Africa through the mid-1800s. What further undermined the British Empire was that many of the vessels involved in the trade were themselves British ships.

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 Bonjour Effect

Paperback
by Barlow, Julie
Why do the French enjoy starting a conversation with an argument? Why do they love talking about the decline of their country? Why do they claim to hate their jobs even when they don't, and fall silent if anyone so much as mentions money?

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...
