Life Without Genes, Adrian Woolfson
7 Adrian Woolfson Life Without Genes
Flamingo 235400 Great Britain 2000 0006548741 / 9780006548744 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Can life exist without genes? What will living things be like in the future and how did life evolve in the first place? '"Life Without Genes" is gloriously playful, enticing, eye-opening and heartening.' Scotsman 'Lucid and entertaining!From Airfix kit-inspired, "Just-So" stories to lucid descriptions of the work of the mathematician Ilya Prigogine, Woolfson is a virtuoso in full command of extraordinary material.' Simon Inges Taking us beyond biology and genes, Adrian Woolfson changes our view of the future forever. Might giraffes grow taller than skyscrapers? How could crocodiles stay underwater for more than an hour? Is it possible to turn a stickleback into a daffodil, or a tiger into a porcupine? Woolfson asks us to imagine a hypermarket stocked with every possible type of toy in the universe, to see DNA as a infinitely flexible Lego, and he takes us on swirling Peter Pan-like trips through our own genes, showing us the full scope (and perils) of genetic engineering. A uniquely accessible work of science, with shades of Huxley, Lewis Carroll and Darwin, 'Life Without Genes' presents a truly startling vision of a future where the consequences of our current genetic experiments turn out to be both stranger and more foreign than we ever imagined. 'Fine-woven from dreams, swooping around the outer edges of the imaginable, "Life Without Genes" takes us to some mind-boggling conceptual spaces, conjuring into existence frightening Borgesian worlds, to make us question our assumptions about life!Wildly, ferally enjoyable.' Lisa Gee, Scotland on Sunday 409 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Science; Science & Technology; ISBN: 0006548741. ISBN/EAN: 9780006548744.

An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore
8 Al Gore An Inconvenient Truth
Bloomsbury 230179 London 2006 0747589062 / 9780747589068 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket "An Inconvenient Truth" Gore's groundbreaking, battle cry of a follow-up to the bestselling "Earth in the Balance" is being published to tie in with a documentary film of the same name. Both the book and film were inspired by a series of multimedia presentations on global warming that Gore created and delivers to groups around the world. With this book, Gore, who is one of our environmental heroes and a leading expert brings together leading-edge research from top scientists around the world; photographs, charts, and other illustrations; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness and with humor, too that the fact of global warming is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous if left unchecked. This riveting new book written in an accessible, entertaining style will open the eyes of even the most skeptical." 325 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900, Alfred W. Crosby
10 Alfred W. Crosby Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900
Cambridge University Press 232555 USA 1991 0521336139 / 9780521336130 Softcover Very Good Condition People of European descent form the bulk of the population in most of the temperate zones of the world - North America, Australia and New Zealand. The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears. But as Alfred Crosby explains in his highly original and fascinating book, the Europeans' displacement and replacement of the native peoples in the temperate zones was more a matter of biology than of military conquest. 368 pages.

A Short History Of Nearly Everything - Illustrated, Bill Bryson
15 Bill Bryson A Short History Of Nearly Everything - Illustrated
Transworld 237854 London 2005 0385609612 / 9780385609616 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good This new edition of the acclaimed bestseller is lavishly illustrated to convey, in pictures as in words, Bill Bryson's exciting, informative journey into the world of science. In A Short History of Nearly Everything, the bestselling author of One Summer, confronts his greatest challenge yet: to understand--and, if possible, answer--the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as his territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. The result is a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it. Now, in this handsome new edition, Bill Bryson's words are supplemented by full-color artwork that explains in visual terms the concepts and wonder of science, at the same time giving face to the major players in the world of scientific study. Eloquently and entertainingly described, as well as richly illustrated, science has never been more involving or entertaining. 624 pages. Inscription to previous owner on title page.
