Описание: For most people the global war over genetically modified foods is a distant and confusing one. A handful of corporate 'life sciences' giants, such as Monsanto,
are pitted against a worldwide network of anticorporate ecowarriors like Greenpeace. The companies claim to be leading a new agricultural revolution that will save the world with crops
modified to survive frost, drought, pests, and plague.
The greens warn that 'playing God' with plant genes is dangerous. It could create new allergies, upset ecosystems,
destroy biodiversity, and produce uncontrollable mutations. In FOOD, INC., acclaimed journalist Peter Pringle shows how both sides in this overheated conflict have made false
promises, engaged in propaganda science, and indulged in fear-mongering.
In this urgent dispatch, he suggests that a fertile partnership between consumers, corporations,
scientists, and farmers could still allow the biotech harvest to reach its full potential in helping to overcome the problem of world hunger, providing nutritious food and keeping the

Описание: Celebrating a glorious summer of cricket, this comprehensive insight into the most thrilling Test series ever played - the battle for the 2005 Ashes - is a story captured by the best in sports writing and journalism, with exclusive contributions from within the England camp and filled with the finest photographs from the summer's action. There has never been a Test series like it. The gladiatorial clash between England and Australia for the 2005 Ashes has had all the vital ingredients of an epic sporting battle: heroic individual deeds, nail-biting finishes, dramatic swings of fortune, and concluding with that elusive holy grail - England capturing Test cricket's greatest prize for the first time in 20 years. "The Daily Telegraph" has collected together in this definitive account of the series the best of its insightful, informed and always challenging journalism. Told through cricket correspondent Derek Pringle's day-by-day match reports, the story of the series is seen as it evolves through each game - from the opening salvoes at Lord's to the grand finale at the Oval - celebrating the heroes and villains on the field, and how this summer of unsurpassed sporting endeavour has stoked a nation to fever-pitch. Contributing to the story, the wry humour of columnist Martin Johnson's interjections contrasts with the more analytical and in-depth views on the cricket from renowned former players and writers like Mark Nicholas, Simon Hughes and Simon Briggs. From the current players' perspective, England opener Marcus Trescothick supplies the match-by-match drama as it occurs, with Australia's Matthew Hayden supplying his views from the opposition camp. Full scorecards for each Test and individual player performance statistics complete a comprehensive package. With over one hundred specially selected photographs capturing the breathless action on the field, "England's Ashes" will be the must-have souvenir book of this enthralling summer of cricket.

Описание: One of the UK`s most respected and well-known journalists and broadcasters moves into fiction. The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle is a multi-generational story of love and belonging set on the Scottish island of Arran.
Описание: The sixteen studies brought together in this book (the second collection of Denys Pringle's articles) are the product of the many years that the author has spent investigating the material evidence for Latin settlement in Syria and Palestine in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Focusing on the building remains of churches and castles - and their relationship to the landscape - the themes that it explores include: the influence that such factors as existing local architectural traditions and the need to accommodate visiting pilgrims may have had on the design of Latin churches and religious houses; the architecture of the Cistercian houses in the kingdom of Jerusalem; the insights that the geographical distribution of church buildings gives into the extent of Christian settlement in the 12th and 13th centuries; the development and geographical extent of estates and lordships, including the lordship of Mirabel; the functions of castles in peace and war and the perception of their role by contemporaries; the design and purpose of castle chapels and the role of their chaplains; the evidence for Armenian inhabitants in the castle of Sahyun; and the identification of the spring of the Cresson that features in accounts of the military campaigns of 1187.

Описание: Acclaimed science writer Heather Pringle uncovers the true story of the scientists and archaeologists Heinrich Himmler deployed to find proof for his theories of a prehistoric Aryan master race. What happens when science falls prey to a political agenda? Pre-history, according to Heinrich Himmler, must be re-written. Himmler, the chief of the SS and architect of the Nazi network of death camps, was obsessed with re-writing history. He was convinced that archaeologists had long ignored the great accomplishments of ancient Germanic peoples. Himmler believed that Germany's ancestors - the tall, blue-eyed, blond-haired Aryans - had evolved not in the savannahs of Africa with the rest of humanity, but in the icy barrens of the Arctic. There, refined and distilled by natural selection in a bitter land, they had become an invincible master race. But some 12,000 years ago, theorized Himmler, a natural cataclysm shook the earth, decimating the scattered Aryan colonies and now, only in select parts of the world - most notably northern Europe - did some true Aryan blood remain. Himmler's history was pure fiction, but his conviction was unshakable. In 1935 he founded the 'Ahnenerbe' - a research institute to manufacture archaeological evidence for political purposes - appointed himself president, and set about recruiting a bizarre mix of adventurers, mystics, careerists and reputable archaeologists to help write a new chapter in the ancient history of the Aryan race. Expeditions went sent out to Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Greenland and beyond, each backed by the power of the Third Reich to realize this bizarre scientific dream. "The Master Plan" is also an expose of the German scientists and scholars who allowed their research to be used to justify extermination - many of whom resumed their academic positions at war's end. Intensely compelling and comprehensively researched, "The Master Plan" is a story of delusion and excess; of scientific and political abuse on a global scale. It has all the energy of an adventure, but also the chilling truth of a terrifying episode in twentieth-century history.
