"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only ha ve four years of life left." -Albert Einstein A third of all that we eat, and much of what we wear, relies on pollination by honeybees. So if - or when - the world loses its black-and-yellow worke rs, the consequences will be dire. What is behind this catastrophe? Viruses, parasites, pesticides and climate change have all been blamed, as has modern monoculture agribusiness. In th is timely book, two keen amateur apiarists investigate all the claims and c ounterclaims with the help of scientists and beekeepers in Europe, America and elsewhere. They ask the question that will soon be on everyone's lips: Is there any possible way of saving the honeybees - and with them, the world as we know it?

Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships, Goleman, Daniel
3 Goleman, Daniel Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Emotional Intelligence was an international phenomenon, appearing on the Ne w York Times bestseller list for over a year and selling more than five mil lion copies worldwide. Now, once again, Daniel Goleman has written a ground breaking synthesis of the latest findings in biology and brain science, rev ealing that we are "wired to connect" and the surprisingly deep impact of o ur relationships on every aspect of our lives. Far more than we are consciously aware, our daily encounters with parents, spouses, bosses, and even strangers shape our brains and affect cells throu ghout our bodies-down to the level of our genes-for good or ill. In Social Intelligence, Daniel Goleman explores an emerging new science with startlin g implications for our interpersonal world. Its most fundamental discovery: we are designed for sociability, constantly engaged in a "neural ballet" t hat connects us brain to brain with those around us. Our reactions to others, and theirs to us, have a far-reaching biological impact, sending out cascades of hormones that regulate everything from our hearts to our immune systems, making good relationships act like vitamins-and bad relationships like poisons. We can "catch" other people's emotions the way we catch a cold, and the consequences of isolation or relentless social stress can be life-shortening. Goleman explains the surprising accuracy of first impressions, the basis of charisma and emotional power, the complexity of sexual attraction, and how we detect lies. He

4 Harrison, Guy P. Race and Reality: What Everyone Should Know about Our Biological Diversity

The concept of race has had a powerful impact on history and continues to s hape the world today in profound ways. Most people derive their attitudes a bout race from their family, culture, and education. Very few, however, are aware that there are vast differences between the popular notions of race and the scientific view of human diversity. Yet even among scientists, who understand the current evidence, there is great controversy regarding the d efinition of the term race or even the usefulness of thinking in terms of r ace at all. Drawing on research from diverse sources and interviews with key scientists , award-winning journalist Guy P. Harrison surveys the current state of a v olatile, important, and confusing subject. Harrison's thorough approach exp lores all sides of the issue, including such questions as these: If analysis of the human genome reveals that all human beings are 99.9% a like, how meaningful are racial differences? Is the concept of race merely a cultural invention? If race distinctions are at least partially based in biological reality, how do we decide the number of races? Are there just three or maybe 3 milli on? What do studies of racial attitudes reveal? Are we all, in one way or ano ther, racists? How does race correlate with environmental and geographical differences? Are race-based drugs a good idea? How does race influence intelligence, athletic ability, and love interest s? Harrison delves into these and many more intriguing, controversial, and
