An environmental journalist chronicles the animal conservation movement in this “informed and informative, provocative and rousing work” (The Telegraph). “This is natural history at its funniest, most curious, enlightening and heartfelt. I couldn’t put it down. It was like going on safari with Gerald Durrell, Rachel Carson and Redmond O’ Hanlon.” —Nicholas Crane Taking as its narrative engine the hunt for an animal that is legendarily rare, Richard Girling—named Environmental Journalist of the Years 2008 and 2009—writes an engaging and highly informative history of humankind’s interest in hunting and collecting. Through the search for the elusive Somali golden mole, he explores the development of the conservation movement, the importance of diversity in the animal kingdom, and the hard facts about extinction. Part historical quest, part modern travelogue, The Hunt for the Golden Mole “illustrates the importance of every living creature, no matter how small, strange or rare” (The Guardian). “Though Girling presents a sobering assessment of the state of the world’s fauna, he does so with the dramatic flair of a novelist and eye for detail of a travel journalist. The result is a page-turning, thought-provoking treatise on a desperate environmental crisis.” —Booklist “This is a book that bursts into life from the first page.” —The Sunday Times “That rarest of delights: a roaring book of huge importance written by a master storyteller exploring our fragile relationship with the animal kingdom.” —Sir Tim Smit

We know that the likelihood of developing many physical diseases, such as diabetes, is determined by genes. But can abnormalities in specific genes also play a part in the development of mental disorders? And, if so, can these genes actually be identified and their discovery put to use in prevention and treatment? In Mood Genes, leading psychiatrist and biological researcher Samuel Barondes answers these questions in a way that renders a complex subject both exciting and understandable. Focusing on manic depressive illness, which affects about one percent of the population and has long been known to run in families, Barondes describes the fascinating hunt for genes--called mood genes--that influence the inherited vulnerability to severe mood disorders. He builds the compelling story of this hunt on the histories of two families riddled with manic-depression, explaining what it means to have an inherited predisposition to a severe mood disorder, how to find the mood genes that are responsible, and what will happen as mood genes are found. Not long ago, saying that a behavioral tendency was genetic was generally taken to mean that it was unchangeable. Now we know that finding genes that influence particular behavioral variations may not just be used to foretell our destinies--but also to forestall them.

Presenting a broad spectrum of reflections on the subject of female transgression in early modern Britain, this volume proposes a richly productive dialogue between literary and historical approaches to the topic. The essays presented here cover a range of ‘transgressive’ women: daughters, witches, prostitutes, thieves; mothers/wives/murderers; violence in NW England; violence in Scotland; single mothers; women as (sexual) partners in crime. Contributions illustrate the dynamic relation between fiction and fact that informs literary and socio-historical analysis alike, exploring female transgression as a process, not of crossing fixed boundaries, but of negotiating the epistemological space between representation and documentation.
This nine volume set presents in easily accessible format the extensive information now available about John Milton. It has grown to be a study of English civilization of Milton's time and a history of literary and political matters since then.
