RHS How to Grow Plants from Seeds By Sophie Collins & Melissa Mabbitt How To Grow Plants From Seeds does away, once and for all, with the idea that there's something difficult about growing direct from seed. There's no need to rely on the professionals to raise seedlings for you: seeds are not only cheap to buy and environmentally friendly but, if you follow a few basic rules, they're also fantastically rewarding, not least because a single packet will usually leave you with plenty of spares to swap with fellow enthusiasts.

You'll discover the basic rules for different seeds, their sowing preferences (Indoor, under cover or direct- toplot? Surface-sow or cover up? Water or spray?), how long they take to germinate, and how to prick out, pot on and raise your infant plants to become sturdy, productive adults.

Growing flowers, veg and herbs from seed is cheap, environmentally friendly and hugely rewarding and this helpful guide shows just how easy it is too. Publication 26/08/2021 £12.99 Hardback 144 pages Other ISBN: 9781784727628

The Land of Maybe By Tim Ecott

'In this excellent book, Ecott's evocative telling makes me want to go to this weird and wonderful place.' - PAUL THEROUX Following the natural cycle of the year, The Land of Maybe captures the essence of 'slow life' on the 18 remote, mysterious islands which make up the Faroes in the North Atlantic. Closer to the UK than Denmark, this fast disappearing world is home to a close-knit society where just 50,000 people share Viking roots and a language that is unlike any other in Scandinavia. We follow the arrival of the migratory birds, the over-wintering of the sheep and the way food is gathered and eaten in tune with the seasons. Buffeted by the weather and the demands of a volatile natural environment, people still hunt seabirds and herd pilot whales for a significant portion of their basic food needs.

These dispatches from the wind and salt-blown islands at 62 degrees north offer delicious escapism. The Land of Maybe is a beautiful evocation of landscape and nature, as well as a portrait of a community which maintains a deep connection with its past.

Publication 09/09/2021 £9.99 Paperback 288 pages B Format ISBN: 9781780725185

This is not a travelogue, but a deeper exploration of how 'to be' in a tough landscape; a study of a people and a way of life that represents continuity and a deep connection to the past. The Land of Maybe offers not just a refuge from the freneticism of modern life, but lessons about where we come from and how we may find a balance in our lives. Tim Ecott is a former BBC World Service staff correspondent. He has worked widely in Africa and the Indian Ocean. He writes documentaries for radio and screen and nonfiction, drawing heavily on his fondness for the natural world. His books include Neutral Buoyancy (Penguin) and Vanilla: travels in search of the luscious substance.

Thirteen Ways to Smell a Tree By David George Haskell

Thirteen Ways to Smell a Tree takes you on a journey to connect with trees through the sense most aligned to our emotions and memories. Thirteen essays are included that explore the evocative scents of trees, from the smell of a book just printed as you first open its pages, to the calming scent of Linden blossom, to the ingredients of a particularly good gin & tonic: In your hand: a highball glass, beaded with cool moisture. In your nose: the aromatic embodiment of globalized trade. The spikey, herbal odour of European juniper berries. A tang of lime juice from a tree descended from wild progenitors in the foothills of the Himalayas. Bitter quinine, from the bark of the South American cinchona tree, spritzed into your nostrils by the pop of sparkling tonic water. Take a sip, feel the aroma and taste of three continents converge.

Explore the unique and sometimes surprising aromas of eleven different species of trees Publication 23/09/2021 £10.00 Hardback 192 pages A Format ISBN: 9781783254286

Each essay also contains a practice the reader is invited to experience. For example, taking a tree inventory of our own home, appreciating just how many things around us came from trees. And if you've ever hugged a tree when no one was looking, try breathing in the scents of different trees that live near you, the smell of pine after the rain, the refreshing, mind-clearing scent of a eucalyptus leaf crushed in your hand. David Haskell's work integrates scientific, literary, and contemplative studies of the natural world. Haskell holds degrees from the University of Oxford (BA) and from Cornell University (PhD). He is Professor of Biology and Environmental Studies at the University of the South, where he served as Chair of Biology. His scientific research on animal ecology, evolution, and conservation has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Fish and Wildlife Service, the World Wildlife Fund, among others. He serves on the boards and advisory committees of local and national land conservation groups. His previous books include The Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature's Great Connectors and The Forest Unseen: A Year's Watch in Nature. Aster dghaskell.com

WOMXN: Sticks and Stones By Lexy Wren-Sillevis There are so many words, insults, labels and boxes for women to be packaged and packed off in. Often, but not always, they're words coined by men. Why that is, is a conversation that is starting to be had by women everywhere. We're slowly, but oh-so-surely, making it clear that there is no man in woman. We're writing him out and writing us back in with a suffix all of our own. We are womxn. Sticks and Stones is a tool for transformation, change and healing. It’s a righting of wrongs – a rewriting of the words that diminish us. This book takes the words, the slurs, the insults and the labels that are thrown at us and it breaks them down and tears them apart. It transmutes and rewrites those words – some with all of the pain they trigger, others as positive affirmations, mantras and poems – all told in acrostics. You can come back to, and work through, any words that resonate with you with the help of a clearing meditation at the back of the book.

A tool for transformation and resilience for women.

How Do I Photograph A Sunset? By Chris Gatcum How do we learn? We learn by asking questions. But what if we don't know what questions we should be asking? Thanks to the digital revolution, photography has never been so popular, and whether you shoot on a phone or a top-spec DSLR or CSC camera, the urge to improve is relentless.

Like Some Forgotten Dream By Daniel Rachel

This is the story of the great lost Beatles album. The end of the Beatles wasn't inevitable. It came through miscommunication, misunderstandings and missed opportunities to reconcile. But what if it didn't end? What if just one of those chances was taken, and the Beatles carried on? What if they made one last, great album.

An award-winning music author takes a serious look at a playful question of pop history: what if the Beatles had created one more album? Publication 26/08/2021 £14.99 Trade Paperback 304 pages Royal ISBN: 9781788403214

In Like Some Forgotten Dream, Daniel Rachel - winner of the prestigious Penderyn Music Book Prize - looks at what could have been. Drawing on impeccable research, Rachel examines the Fab Four's untimely demise - and from the ashes compiles a track list for an imagined final album, pulling together unfinished demos, forgotten B-sides, hit solo songs, and arguing that together they form the basis of a lost Beatles masterpiece. Compelling and convincing, Like Some Forgotten Dream is a daring re-write of Beatles history, and a tantalising glimpse of what might have been. Daniel Rachel is a musician turned award-winning author. His previous books include NME and Guardian Book of the Year Isle of Noises, Evening Standard Book of the Year Don't Look Back in Anger, and Walls Come Tumbling Down, which was described as 'triumphant' by the Guardian and 'superlative...brilliant' by Q magazine, and was awarded the prestigious Penderyn Music Book Prize in 2017.

Photography – A Feminist History By Emma Lewis How did the abolitionist movement interact with women's entry into the field of photography? What does the medium have to do with menstrual taboos? Is there even such a thing as a 'feminist image'? Whether working in the studio or on the front line, women have contributed to every aspect of photography's short history. For some, gender is front and centre; for others, it's merely incidental. All have been affected by the power structures beyond their camera lenses. Far too many have been, and continue to be, overlooked. Mapping photographic developments against shifting gender rights and roles, Photography - A Feminist History shines a light on how photography has borne witness to women's movements and made the causes for which they fight visible, and how, in turn, different approaches to feminism have given us ways of understanding photographs. Authoritative and international in scope, Photography - A Feminist History features over 140 photographers, with ten thematic essays, and extended profiles on 75 key practitioners, many informed by conversations with the author.

Testosterone By Carole Hooven

Through riveting personal stories and the latest research, Harvard evolutionary biologist Carole Hooven shows how testosterone drives the behaviour of the sexes apart and how understanding the science behind this hormone is empowering for all. The biological source of masculinity has inspired fascination, investigation and controversy since antiquity. Humans have long been obsessed with identifying and manipulating what we now know as testosterone. And the trend shows no signs of slowing down. Today we have a rich body of research about testosterone's effects in both men and women.

'With all the talk about testosterone in sex, sports and politics, we need a good explanation of the science and its implications, and this one is outstanding.' Steven Pinker, bestselling author of The Blank Slate Publication 08/07/2021 £16.99 Hardback 320 pages Royal ISBN: 9781788402927

The science is clear: testosterone is a major, invisible player in our relationships, sex lives, athletic abilities, childhood play, gender transitions, parenting roles, violent crime, and so much more. But there is still a lot of pushback to the idea that it does, in fact, contribute to sex differences and significantly influence behaviour. Hooven argues that acknowledging testosterone as a potent force in society doesn't reinforce stifling gender norms or patriarchal values. Testosterone and evolution work together to produce a huge variety of human behaviour, and that includes a multitude of ways to be masculine and feminine. Understanding the science sheds light on how we work and relate to one another, and how we fight bias and problematic behaviour to build a fairer society.

Carole Hooven, PhD is Lecturer and Co-director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University. She earned her PhD at Harvard, studying sex differences and testosterone, and has taught there ever since. Hooven has received numerous teaching awards, and her popular Hormones and Behaviour class was named one of the Harvard Crimson's 'top ten tried and true.'

Understanding the science sheds light on how we work and relate to one another, and how we fight bias and problematic behaviour to build a fairer society. Carole Hooven, PhD is Lecturer and Co-director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University. She earned her PhD at Harvard, studying sex differences and testosterone, and has taught there ever since. Hooven has received numerous teaching awards, and her popular Hormones and Behaviour class was named one of the Harvard Crimson's 'top ten tried and true.'

Unexplained Deaths By Bruce Goldfarb ‘An engrossing chronicle of France’s life and the early years of detection’ Wall Street Journal For most of human history, sudden and unexpected deaths of a suspicious nature, when they were investigated at all, were examined by lay persons without any formal training. People often got away with murder. That is, until Frances Glessner Lee. Born in 1878, Frances Glessner Lee was never meant to have a career, let alone one steeped in death and depravity. Yet she became the mother of modern forensics and was instrumental in elevating homicide investigation to a scientific discipline. Among her many contributions to the science of detection is The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death - a series of dollhouse-sized crime scene dioramas depicting the facts of actual cases in exquisitely detailed miniature. These macabre dollhouses, created by Frances, were part of a revolutionary training method designed to teach detectives to seek out the clues to a suspicious death.

The unlikely tale of Frances Glessner Lee and her revolutionary work in forensic science through the creation of the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death, a series of dollhouse-sized crime scene dioramas that she used to teach homicide investigators.

Publication 05/08/2021 £8.99 Paperback 320 pages B Format ISBN: 9781913068271

In Unexplained Deaths, official biographer Bruce Goldfarb weaves Frances’s remarkable story with the advances in forensics made in her lifetime to tell the tale of the birth of modern forensics. Bruce Goldfarb is the executive assistant to the Chief Medical Examiner for the state of Maryland, US, where the 'Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death' are housed. He is the public information officer for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and trained as a forensic investigator. Bruce began his career as a paramedic before becoming an award-winning journalist reporting on medicine, science and health. Through his work with the Nutshell Studies, Bruce earned the trust of Frances Glessner Lee's family and caretakers of her estate, and was designated Lee's official biographer.

Catch Your Breath By Ed Patrick One of my best friends recently called me after his wife gave birth in hospital, telling me about their anaesthetist. "They're just fantastic! Then I remembered, Ed you're an anaesthetist...f*cking hell! I can't believe that...". I like to think I'm an inspiration to all budding doctors that anything is achievable. Ed is an anaesthetist, and the irony is not lost as he gives patients something he's found in short supply - sleep. Strong drugs for his patients, strong coffee for him. Hilariously funny, moving and truly insightful, Catch Your Breath follows Ed's journey from bewildered medical student in Aberdeen to unflinching anaesthetist on the NHS frontline. A dose of insight into life on the hospital wards during the pandemic, while injecting hope that we will all get through this. There's plenty of laughing gas to be had.

The Power of Women Dr Denis Mukwege Nobel laureate, world-renowned doctor and human rights activist Dr Mukwege has dedicated his life to caring for victims of sexual violence. Over the past two decades living and working in the Democratic Republic of Congo, he has stood up to soldiers and warlords, survived massacres and multiple assassination attempts, never swaying from his mission. In this book Dr Mukwege interweaves his own dramatic story with the experiences of a range of extraordinary characters: the women he has treated – many of whom, after suffering unspeakable brutality, have had the strength to heal and rebuild their lives – as well as the people he has worked with and survivors of sexual violence whom he has met during his years of advocating for women’s rights around the world.

‘These women are each a light and an inspiration, demonstrating how the best instincts of humanity – to love, to share, to protect others – can triumph in the worst possible circumstances.’ Publication 11/11/2021 £6.99 Royal Hardback 320 pages Short Books ISBN: 9781780725321

Early on in his career, Dr Mukwege realised what he was dealing with in the DRC was merely the extreme end of a global scourge. Sexual violence is the most common, under-reported and least prosecuted crime in the world. It does not occur in a vacuum. We are all implicated – whether the violence occurs in war-torn countries, or on college campuses in the West. The Power of Women is a rallying cry to rid our societies of violence against women, and to better learn from their resilience, strength and power. It challenges us to think about our own experiences and how all of us have a part to play in bringing about change.

The Storm Is Upon Us By Mike Rothschild

This is the real story of QAnon - what it is, what it means, and where it goes. And be warned - none of it is pretty. On 5th October 2017, President Trump made a cryptic off-the-cuff remark in the State Dining Room. He called this gathering of topranking military officials 'the calm before the storm' and refused to elaborate as journalist and politicos inquired further. But on the online message boards of 4chan, elaboration began all on its own. In the days that followed, an anonymous poster spun a yarn inspired by Trump's remarks that rivalled Tom Clancy and satisfied the deepest desires of MAGA-America. Did any of it come to pass? No. Did that stop people from clinging to every word, expanding its mythology and promoting the theory for years? No.

A serious journalistic investigation into the bizarre cult that is taking over American politics and the world.
