    Long before the phrase 'climate change' was a universal catchphrase, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales was studying the impact of industrialization on the environment. Now in this fascinating cross-discipline work, the Prince of Wales calls upon his years of research and explores the way in which mankind must work to restore the delicate balance with nature that we've lost in the centuries since the industrial revolution began.

    Quando si pensa alle antiche civiltà del continente americano, come quella maya o azteca, si è soliti associarle a immagini di piramidi immerse nella foresta; difficilmente si pensa a come si nutrivano. Se in genere si fatica a riconoscere l’origine americana di molti cibi della nostra tavola, come patate, mais e pomodori, ancor più difficilmente si associano questi cibi alle loro originarie forme di preparazione e alle antiche culture alimentari di cui fecero parte.

    Another rapid-fire selection of short, stimulating and entertaining capsules of philosophy from the master of the genre. This time Baggini applies his philosophical scalpel to famous sayings, proverbs and pieces of homespun wisdom. Should you really do as the Romans do when in Rome and practice what you preach? Is the grass always in fact greener on the other side of the fence, and is there ever smoke without fire? Is beauty always in the eye of the beholder and is it actually better to be safe than sorry?

    In 1997 it seemed that things in the City could only get better. For ten years everything went according to plan. Buoyed by a strong pound and cheered on by an excitable media, the bankers became the heroes of the age. And then in the summer of 2007 everything began to collapse. Barely a year later the City was in tatters. Greed, guile and excess – this definitive insider’s account charts an intoxicated decade and cogently reveals just how, and why, the City got it so badly wrong.
