PROFILE BOOKS 2019


What should you read during the apocalypse? As the world roasts in record-breaking heatwaves and the Government announces plans to start stockpiling food and medicine, it’s time to give this question the serious thought it deserves. So, what should take its place alongside the cans of beans and water purifier? We think you’ll find everything you need in this Profile catalogue. In A Farmer’s Diary you’ll discover the best method for delivering a lamb, while The Forager’s Calendar is your indispensable guide to leaves, berries and other seasonal delicacies. Meanwhile, Chasing the Sun will help your body clock adapt to the natural cycle of light and dark (and explain why that might be better for you anyway). It won’t be a walk in the park, and grit and courage won’t be enough on their own – you’ll need smarts as well. For examples of the former, consult Keirin, an insider’s view of Japan’s intensely competitive cycling subculture, but don’t forget to pack The Laws of Human Nature to help you plot, scheme and manipulate your way out of trouble. Survival assured, it’s time to rebuild society. Get a head start on repopulation with The Making of You, a fascinating account of the science of pregnancy – and see what you think of The Goodness Paradox’s thought-provoking ideas about social morality. In between all this, the idea of Escape from Earth may start to seem pretty tempting, so make sure you bring Fraser MacDonald’s wild tale of the NASA scientists who first worked out how to blast off and leave this all behind. Happy reading! ANDREW FRANKLIN PUBLISHER

Thinking Matter Our Quest to Understand the Brain A historical journey inside the most complex object in the universe We’ve been trying to make sense of the link between our minds and our bodies since the very dawn of civilisation. Now the pace is hotting up. Join the biologist and historian Matthew Cobb (Life’s Greatest Secret) to explore the weird theories, blasphemous experiments and terrifying operating theatres that got us here, to the cusp of revelation. Written with ambition and verve and rooted in a solid scientific explanation of the issues, Thinking Matter spans the centuries to reveal how the lives and works of a parade of philosophers, surgeons, mystics and neuroscientists have shaped the way we understand ourselves at the most profound level. From primitive dissections to the latest complex computational models of brain function, Cobb charts the course of this continuing quest, and prepares us for the astonishing discoveries to come.

PETER HESSLER

The Buried An Archaeology of the Egyptian Revolution An intimate excavation of life in one of the world’s oldest civilisations at a time of convulsive change In 2011, the world’s eyes were on Egypt, as revolution swept across the country. But what lay below the surface of events was harder to see. Living in Cairo, over the following years award-winning writer Peter Hessler set out to uncover the everyday lives and archaeological secrets of a country in turmoil. Through extraordinary first-hand reporting and research, Hessler brings to light the relationship between the ancient past and the contemporary condition. From the protests in Tahrir Square, to Egypt’s first democratic elections, the massacres, the coup and its aftermath, The Buried follows the ongoing events of the Arab Spring while also exploring the social forces and historical context behind it. At its heart lie human stories: iconoclastic Pharaoh Akhenaten, rubbish collector Saeed, Arabic teacher Rifaat, Chinese lingerie salesmen and resourceful archaeologists. Together, they raise the question: is revolution just repetition, or can things really change?

Peter Hessler is a staff writer at the New Yorker, where he served as Beijing correspondent from 2000–2007, and is a contributing writer for National Geographic. He is the author of River Town, which won the Kiriyama Prize, Oracle Bones, which was a finalist for the National Book Award, Country Driving and Strange Stones.

The Making of You A Scientific Journey A foetus’-eye perspective on the journey from gamete to baby The Making of You is the inside story of a pregnancy, from the first cell to the first breath. This is pop science, not a parenting manual, and it almost certainly contains things you didn’t know on almost every page. Did you know that sperm have a sense of smell? That your body has three goes at making kidneys before it gets it right? That the groove on your lip is a seam where the sheets of skin that form your face fused together? This is a very short book, written in language so simple an intelligent child could read it, but it crams a lot into a very small space. It’s not only a wonder-inducing account of our own individual origins; it also finds time to tell the story of how we discovered how pregnancy works, from Aristotle’s experiments on chicken eggs to molecular biology. And it brings you to the cutting edge of research.

Chasing the Sun How the Science of Sunlight Shapes our Bodies and Minds The crucial importance of sunlight and how to survive in a 24/7 world From the dawn of time, humans have worshipped the sun. And they were right to: new research shows that the sun has transformed human biology in profound and surprising ways. From our sleep cycles to our immune systems to our mental health, access to sunlight is crucial for living happy and fulfilling lives. Bursting with cutting-edge science and helpful advice, Chasing the Sun explores everything from ancient solstice celebrations to modern sleep labs, the unexpected health benefits of sunbathing and what the Amish know about sleep that the rest of us don’t. As more of us move into light-polluted cities, spending our days in dim offices and our evenings watching brightly lit screens, we are in danger of losing something vital: our connection to the star that gave us life – and still keeps order in our bodies and minds.

A Farmer’s Diary A Year at High House Farm A hilarious and honest account of a farmer’s year – from lambing to harvest Sally Urwin and her husband Steve own High House Farm in Northumberland, which they share with Mavis the Sheepdog, one very fat pony, and many, many sheep. Set in beautiful, wild landscape, and in use for generations, it’s the perfect setting for Sally’s (sometimes brutally) honest and charming account of farming life. From stock sales to lambing sheds, and out in the fields in driving snow and hot summer days, A Farmer’s Diary reveals the highs, lows and hard, hard work involved in making a living from the land. Filled with grit and humour, newborn lambs and local characters, this is the perfect book for anyone who has ever wondered what it’s like on the other side of the fence.

Sally Urwin is (probably) the shortest farmer in England and lives with her family and a lot of sheep in Northumberland. She used to work in the most depressing job in the world – marketing manager for a bankruptcy practitioner – but made a bid for freedom after nabbing farmer Steve from the Dating Direct website in 2001.

The Professor and the Parson A Story of Desire, Deceit and Defrocking The outrageous life of ‘Robert Peters’: clergyman, conman, and serial seducer One day in November 1958 the celebrated historian Hugh Trevor-Roper received a curious letter: an appeal for help, written on behalf of a Magdalen postgraduate, who complained he was being persecuted by the Bishop of Oxford. Curiosity piqued, he agreed to see the man calling himself ‘Robert Peters’. It was to be the start of an investigation that he would pursue for the next quarter of a century. Beginning with Trevor-Roper’s detailed dossier on Peters, Adam Sisman uncovers the extraordinary career of one of England’s most eccentric conmen. From Colombo, Sri Lanka, to Columbus, Ohio, Peters lied, stole and cheated his way to clerical and teaching posts – and despite being repeatedly exposed, deported and defrocked, he always bounced back again as if nothing had happened. Behind him he left a trail of destruction, including at least seven marriages, two prison sentences and a disastrous appearance on Mastermind.

Adam Sisman is the author of Boswell’s Presumptuous Task, winner of the US National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography, and the biographer of John Le Carré, A. J. P. Taylor and Hugh Trevor-Roper. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and an Honorary Fellow of the University of St Andrews.

April is for Gorse and Dandelion flowers, traditionally collected on St. George’s Day. Make the most of May, when everything is green and fresh. June provides some wild food favourites: the Japanese Rose, Gooseberry and Marsh Samphire. If you feel adventurous in July, try the Black Garden Ant. A wet August is no bad thing, prompting the Summer Truffle to appear. September overflows with fruits, seeds and mushrooms to choose from. The star of October is the Sweet Chestnut. November and December are months to enjoy or gift the pickles, preserves, juices and wine that you’ve made from your wild harvests.

Tragedy, the Greeks and Us A provocative and timely exploration of tragedy

We might think we are through with the past, but the past isn’t through with us. Tragedy permits us to come face to face with the things we don’t want to know about ourselves, but which still make us who we are. It articulates the conflicts and contradictions that we need to address in order to better understand the world we live in. A work honed from a decade’s teaching at the New School, where ‘Critchley on Tragedy’ is one of the most popular courses, Tragedy, the Greeks and Us is a compelling examination of the history of tragedy. Simon Critchley demolishes our common misconceptions about the poets, dramatists and philosophers of Ancient Greece – then presents these writers to us in an unfamiliar and original light.

Escape from Earth The Secret History of How We Reached Space Spies, sex-magic, socialism and the first rocket in space

Before rocket science became the preserve of highpowered government agencies and swaggering tycoons, it was a joke: the pipe-dream of madmen and drop-outs, high explosives and science fiction, not to mention politics, drugs and occult sex rituals. This is the story of the hidden struggles that lay behind the genesis of America’s first space programme. A book about transcendence and betrayal, and Frank Malina, one of the most important figures in twentiethcentury science, overlooked for decades because his commitment to Communism made him an enemy of his own government. Drawing on an astonishing new set of personal documents, MacDonald explodes the familiar narrative of the birth of space flight, replacing it with something darker and weirder.

Fraser MacDonald is a lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Edinburgh where he teaches historical geography and the history of science. He has a regular byline at the Guardian and has also written for Aeon, the Herald, the Age, the Australian, and the LRB blog, among others publications.

Working with Nature Saving and Using the World’s Wild Places A lifetime’s work in world nature conservation From cocoa farming in Ghana to the orchards of Kent and the desert badlands of Pakistan, taking a practical approach to sustaining the landscape can mean the difference between prosperity and ruin. Working with Nature is the story of a lifetime of work, often in extreme environments, to harvest nature and protect it – in effect, gardening on a global scale. It is also a memoir of encounters with larger-than-life characters such as William Bunting, the gun-toting saviour of Yorkshire’s peatlands and the aristocratic gardener Vita Sackville-West, examining their idiosyncratic approaches to conservation. Jeremy Purseglove explains clearly and convincingly why it’s not a good idea to extract as many resources as possible, whether it’s the demand for palm oil currently denuding the forests of Borneo, or cottonfield irrigation draining the Aral Sea, or monocrops spreading across Britain. The pioneer of engineering projects to preserve nature and landscape, first in Britain and then around the world, he offers fresh insights and solutions at each step.

Jeremy Purseglove helped to develop a method of reducing floods which also preserved the beauty of rivers. This culminated in the influential Taming the Flood (reissued 2017). He now works around the world with engineers to promote practical development while enhancing wetlands, forests and flower-rich meadows.

The Origin of Empire Rome from the Republic to Hadrian (264 BC–138 AD) Spanning over 300 action-packed years, including Rome’s transformation into a world empire In 264 BC, a Roman army was poised to cross from southern Italy into Sicily. They couldn’t know that this crossing would be Rome’s first step on its journey from local republic to vast and powerful empire. At the beginning of the three dramatic centuries that make up this book’s narrative, Rome had no emperor and limited global influence; by the book’s end, Hadrian was set to pass into history as one of the greatest emperors, whose territories stretched from England to Turkey. In David Potter’s masterful history, we trace the process of cultural, political and civic transformation which led to the creation of a monarchy and the acquisition of territory, via wars with Hannibal, the destruction of Carthage, Augustan empire-building and Hadrian’s famous wall, all of which contributed to the most successful multi-cultural state in the history of Europe. This is a lively, scholarly approach to an essential era.

And in the fashionable resorts of the Mediterranean, the beautiful people sun themselves on picture-postcard beaches. And in those long, hot summer nights ... murder walks abroad. Away from familiar surroundings, and as the temperature rises, old grudges come to the surface, new hatreds reach boiling point – and clever minds start to make dangerous plans. These ten classic mysteries, from some of the finest crime writers, prove that no matter where you travel to, there’s no rest for the wicked. Includes writing from well-loved masters of the genre.

Uncertainty Do Dice Play God? Charting the mathematics of uncertainty from card games to chaos We began our quest to make certain an uncertain world reading omens in livers. Over the centuries, driven by curiosity, competition, and a desire to be better gamblers, mathematicians and scientists began to reduce wild uncertainties to tame distributions of probability. Yet, even as unknown unknowns became known unknowns, our pessimism made us deem certain problems unsolvable and our intuition misled us. Worse, as we realised how omnipresent and varied uncertainty is, we encountered chaos, quantum mechanics, and the limitations of our predictions. Bestselling author Ian Stewart explores the history and mathematics of uncertainty. Touching on statistics, financial and weather forecasts, censuses, medical studies, chaos, physics and climate, he makes one thing clear: a reasonable probability is the only certainty.

DIARMAID FERRITER

The Border The Legacy of a Century of Anglo-Irish Politics The ever-changing border between the Republic and Northern Ireland Today, you can cross the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic half a dozen times without noticing or, indeed, without turning off the road you’re travelling. It cuts through fields, winds back-and-forth across roads, and wends from the mouth of the Newry River to the mouth of the Foyle. It is frictionless – a feat sealed by the signing of the Good Friday Agreement. But, twenty years ago, watchtowers loomed over border communities, military checkpoints dotted the roads, and bridges had been demolished to prevent crossings. This is a past that most are happy to have left behind but it may also be the future. The border has been a challenge for governments north, south, in Westminster and now in Europe. In this timely history, renowned historian Diarmaid Ferriter charts its reality from 1918 to the potential consequences of Brexit.

Diarmaid Ferriter is one of Ireland’s most renowned historians. He is Professor of Modern Irish History at University College Dublin. He is a regular broadcaster on television and radio, co-wrote the 2018 film Keepers of the Flame and is a weekly columnist with the Irish Times.

RICHARD WRANGHAM

The Goodness Paradox How Evolution Made Us More and Less Violent A provocative new theory of the roots of human civilisation It may not always seem so, but day-to-day interactions between individual humans are extraordinarily peaceful. That is not to say that we are perfect, just far less violent than most animals, especially our closest relative, the chimpanzee. We are even less violent than the chimpanzee’s legendarily docile cousin, the bonobo. But there is one form of violence that humans exceed all other animals in by several degrees: organised, proactive violence against other groups of humans. In The Goodness Paradox, Richard Wrangham wrestles with this contradiction at the heart of human behaviour. Through contemporary archaeological methods and drawing on the latest research he shows how we are a tamed version of our wilder ancestors, and argues that what domesticated our species was nothing less than the invention of capital punishment which eliminated the least cooperative and most aggressive among us. But that development is exactly what laid the groundwork for the worst of our atrocities.

The Moon A Past and Future History An intimate, profound portrait of Earth’s closest neighbour Every generation has looked up from Earth and wondered at the beauty of the Moon. Fifty years ago, a few Americans became the first to do the reverse – with the whole world watching through their eyes. In this short but wide-ranging book, Oliver Morton explores the history and future of humankind’s relationship with the Moon. A counterpoint in the sky, it has shaped our understanding of the Earth from Galileo to Apollo. Its gentle light has spoken of love and loneliness; its battered surface of death and the cosmic. For some, it is a future on which humankind has turned its back, for others, an adventure yet to begin. Advanced technologies, new ambitions and old dreams mean that men, women and robots now seem certain to return to the Moon. What will they learn there about the universe, Earth – and themselves? And, this time, will they stay?

Oliver Morton is a senior editor at The Economist and an award-winning writer. He is the author of Mapping Mars, Eating the Sun and The Planet Remade.

Gresham’s Law The Life and World of Queen Elizabeth I’s Banker The story of the man who made London the centre of the financial universe Sir Thomas Gresham was a liar, a cheat and an adulterer. He overcharged his clients, promised to pay people money he did not have, and succeeded in finance through a combination of luck, ruthlessness and obsession. He was also Queen Elizabeth I’s banker. In this biography, John Guy draws on hitherto overlooked primary sources to give a full picture of the man who founded the Royal Exchange and helped make London the financial centre of the planet. He reveals an ambitious, flawed man who was constantly obsessed with his status, a philanderer who left his widow saddled with his debts, and who thought he had the respect of his foremost client, Queen Elizabeth I, who in fact, viewed him as a ‘necessary evil’. But Gresham also emerges as a kind of wizard, who understood the emerging power of money better than anyone else alive.

The Laws of Human Nature The definitive book on decoding the behaviour of the people around you

Robert Greene is a master guide for millions of readers, distilling ancient wisdom and philosophy into essential texts for seekers of power, understanding and mastery. Now he turns to the most important subject of all – understanding people’s drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them themselves. We are social animals. Our very lives depend on our relationships with people. Drawing from the ideas and examples of Pericles, Queen Elizabeth I, Martin Luther King Jr. and others, Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self-control, how to develop the empathy that leads to insight, how to look behind people’s masks, and how to resist conformity to develop your singular sense of purpose.

RASHID I. KHALIDI

The Hundred Years War on Palestine 1917–2017 Palestine from the perspective of the Palestinians From the Balfour Declaration to the current conflict, this is the definitive history of Palestine from the perspective of Palestinians. Renowned scholar and historian Professor Rashid I. Khalidi draws on primary sources to give an account of a century of colonial conflict as well as his own family’s experiences over the past century. He interweaves voices such as that of the nineteenth–century Arab mayor of Jerusalem who predicted the coming conflict, nationalist writer and educator Muhammad ‘Izzat Darwaza, and leaders of the Palestine Liberation Organisation including Faysal Husayni, Hanan Ashrawi and Yasser Arafat, with his own account as a child of a UN official and a resident of Beirut during its 1982 siege. The result is an intensely personal history of one of the longest running and most controversial modern conflicts.

Mr. Five Per Cent The Many Lives of Calouste Gulbenkian, the World’s Richest Man Deal-maker, art collector, philanthropist – the definitive biography At his death in 1955, Calouste Gulbenkian was the richest man in the world, known as ‘Mr. Five Per Cent’ for his personal share of Middle East oil production. For half a century everyone from the Ottoman Sultans to Joseph Stalin sought his advice on oil policy, the latter rewarding him with Rembrandts from Russia’s Hermitage Museum for his spectacular art collection. Today the companies that Gulbenkian created – including Shell and Total – are household names, while the international agreements he brokered still shape the fortunes of Iraq, Venezuela and other oil-producing countries across the globe. Yet Gulbenkian’s secrecy ensured that his remarkable full story has remained untold – until now. Published to mark the 150th anniversary in 2019 of Gulbenkian’s birth, alongside events organised by his greatest legacy, the Gulbenkian Foundation, Mr. Five Per Cent reveals the many lives of a staggeringly powerful recluse.

The Future of Almost Everything The Global Changes that will Affect Every Business and All Our Lives Upated, with longer–range predictions Patrick Dixon, the man the Wall Street Journal describes as a ‘global change guru’, looks at how the future will be Fast, Urban, Tribal, Universal, Radical and Ethical. He sketches a future of boom and bust and great economic change as the emerging markets grow; a future of great advances in medicine and also greater threats from viral epidemics; a future in which there will be driverless cars and where solar power generated in the desert will power cities thousands of miles away. In this new edition he extends the trend lines further into the future to give an even better, more inspiring and more useful picture of the direction the world is heading.

Patrick Dixon trained as a physician before setting up an IT business involved in artificial intelligence and medical technology. Today he advises the senior teams of the world’s largest corporations. He is the author of fifteen books, including Futurewise, published by Profile, which has sold over half a million copies in eight languages.

14-18 NOW Five Years of Extraordinary Art Experiences The illustrated companion to the 14-18 NOW commemoration programme Perceptions of the First World War have been shaped by the artists of the time, including poets, painters, photographers and film-makers – many of whom served and who reflected on the war and its effects. One hundred years later, today’s artists are opening new perspectives on the present as well as the past. This illustrated hardback provides a detailed look at the extensive 14-18 NOW programme, which was established to mark the centenary of the First World War. Spread over five years, this programme of extraordinary arts experiences included painting, photography, sculpture, poetry, theatre, dance, installation, film and other performance pieces. It is one of the largest public art commissions ever and has led to the creation of over 325 artworks, which have been seen by more than 30 million people. Featured artists include Gillian Wearing, Rachel Whiteread, Jeremy Deller, Peter Jackson and Danny Boyle.

Jenny Waldman is Director of the 14-18 NOW arts programme and was previously the Creative Producer of the London 2012 Festival, the finale of the Cultural Olympiad for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Known by various names, Laithwaites is now the top wine company in the UK and a leading example of a thriving family business-turned-empire. In the 1960s young geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing wine bottles in Bordeaux and soon fell head-over-heels in love with wine and the people who make it. After setting up a small business in the UK, he soon joined forces with Harold Evans at The Times to set up the hugely successful Sunday Times Wine Club. It wasn’t long before hundreds of small wineries around the world were queuing up to take part in Tony’s venture. Direct is not just the remarkable story of a wine company, or its wines, but a tale of the people who have created its success.
