The bicentenary of the first human sighting of Antarctica is an opportunity to reflect on our Antarctic legacy as the latest scientific research reveals the startling impacts that climate change in Antarctica could have on a global scale. Discover this remarkable continent covered in ice, where days endure for months, highways are built by penguins and shimmering lights illuminate the night sky.

            Himalaya: A Human History

            This is the first major history of the Himalaya: an epic story of peoples, cultures and adventures among the world's highest mountains. Spanning millennia, from its earliest inhabitants to the present conflicts over Tibet and Everest, Himalaya is a soaring account of resilience a...nd conquest, discovery and plunder, oppression and enlightenment at the 'roof of the world'. From all around the globe, the unique and astonishing geography of the Himalaya has attracted those in search of spiritual and literal elevation: pilgrims, adventurers and mountaineers seeking to test themselves among the world's most spectacular and challenging peaks. But far from being wild and barren, the Himalaya has throughout the ages been home to an astonishing diversity of indigenous and local cultures, as well as a crossroads for trade, and a meeting point and conflict zone for the world's superpowers. Here Jesuit missionaries exchanged technologies with Tibetan Lamas, Mongol Khans employed Nepali craftsmen, Armenian merchants exchanged musk and gold with Mughals. Here too the East India Company grappled for dominance with China's emperors, independent India has been locked in conflict with Mao's Communists and their successors, and the ideological confrontation of the Cold War is now being buried beneath mass tourism and ecological transformation. Featuring scholars and tyrants, bandits and CIA agents, go-betweens and revolutionaries, Himalaya is a panoramic, character-driven history on the grandest but also the most human scale, by far the most comprehensive yet written, encompassing geology and genetics, botany and art, and bursting with stories of courage and resourcefulness.

            Antarctic Atlas: New Maps and Graphics That Tell the Story of A Continent (Hardback)

            Remote, evocative and romantic, the frozen continent holds a unique place in the psyche of humanity. It is a world apart. Separated geographically from warmer lands by the cold and tumultuous waters of the Southern Ocean and separated in our mind by just as wide a chasm. Antarcti...ca is different to other continents; it has never been permanently inhabited and has no native population. Many parts of the interior are still pristine; a rare quality on this ever more sanitized and urbanized planet, and although becoming rarer, there are still a few places where human feet have never trod, vistas that no eye has yet seen. Peter Fretwell's pioneering maps reveal every knowable facet of this isolated land, from the life of an iceberg to the adventures of penguins and albatrosses, from drowning coasts to unimaginable blizzards, deep water conveyors and the realities of the not-so-distant future.
