            We are entering an empathy crisis. So much of our communication is conveyed through non-verbal cues - facial expressions, tone of voice, body language - nuances that are completely lost when we interact through our smartphones and other technology. The result is a digital univers...e that's emotion-blind - a society lacking in empathy. Rana al Kaloubi discovered this when she left Cairo, a newly-married, Muslim woman, to take up her place at Cambridge University to study computer science. Many thousands of miles from home, she began to develop systems to help her better connect with her family. She started to pioneer the new field of Emotional Intelligence (EI). She now runs her company, Affectiva (the industry-leader in this emerging field) that builds EI into our technology and develops systems that understand humans the way we understand one another. In a captivating memoir, Girl Decoded chronicles el Kaliouby's mission to humanise technology and what she learns about humanity along the way.

            Wild Child: Coming Home to Nature

            From Huckleberry Finn to Peter Pan, from the Famous Five to The Secret Garden, we have always envisaged an idyllic and happy childhood taking place outdoors. We nostalgically recall the pre-Internet, pre-Playstation days of tree-climbing, tadpole-fishing, bike-riding and wide gre...en spaces and agonise about the new generation's 'nature deficit disorder'. And yet, for all our middle-class handwringing over the disappearance of a greener yesteryear, the statistics are truly alarming: children can't identify the commonest of birds or plants, or even where food comes from; they are confined to home, shop, school and car. Children are increasingly alienated, not only from green spaces, but from the independence to play outside. The more we consider contemporary childhood, the more complex the picture becomes. In this timely and approachable book, Patrick Barkham explores the role that wild things - and the freedom to run wild - shape children and our understanding of the way children develop. It combines Patrick's own experience growing up in the countryside and his experience of bringing up his own children with vivid nature writing, rich cultural history and a measured investigation of the vast body of psychological and sociological research that has been carried out in this field. It will challenge cliches about nature and modernity while offering a rich and varied picture of childhood and the 'wild' child.

            Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny

            Misogyny is a hot topic, yet it's often misunderstood. What is misogyny, exactly? Who deserves to be called a misogynist? How does misogyny contrast with sexism, and why is it prone to persist - or increase - even when sexist gender roles are waning? In Down Girl moral philosophe...r Kate Manne argues that misogyny should not be understood primarily in terms of the hatred or hostility some men feel toward all or most women. Rather, it is primarily about controlling, policing, punishing and exiling the bad women who challenge male dominance. And it is compatible with rewarding the good ones and singling out other women to serve as warnings to those who are out of order. A powerful, lucid analysis of the logic of misogyny from a remarkable feminist thinker, Down Girl is essential reading for the #MeToo era.

            It's a belief that unites the left and right, psychologists and philosophers, writers and historians. It drives the headlines that surround us and the laws that touch our lives. And its roots sink deep into Western thought: from Machiavelli to Hobbes, Freud to Pinker, the tacit a...ssumption is that humans are bad. Humankind makes the case for a new argument: that it is realistic, as well as revolutionary, to assume that people are good. When we think the worst of others, it brings out the worst in our politics and economics too. In his long-awaited second book, international-bestselling author Rutger Bregman shows how believing in human kindness and altruism can be a new way to think - and act as the foundation for achieving true change in our society. It is time for a new view of human nature.

            Clear Bright Future: A Radical Defence of the Human Being

            How do we preserve what makes us human in an age of uncertainty? Are we now just consumers shaped by market forces? A sequence of DNA? A collection of base instincts? Or will we soon be supplanted by algorithms and A.I. anyway? In Clear Bright Future, Paul Mason calls for a radic...al, impassioned defence of the human being, our universal rights and freedoms and our power to change the world around us. Ranging from economics to Big Data, from neuroscience to the culture wars, he draws from his on-the-ground reporting from mass protests in Istanbul to riots in Washington, as well as his own childhood in an English mining community, to show how the notion of humanity has become eroded as never before. In this book Paul Mason argues that we are still capable - through language, innovation and co-operation - of shaping our future. He offers a vision of humans as more than puppets, customers or cogs in a machine. This work of radical optimism asks: Do you want to be controlled? Or do you want something better?
