This small book contains big revelations. It unveils the mysteries behind the world’s great paintings. Or, it might not. The (True!) History of Art takes an outrageously speculative look at the stories behind the works of Monet, Rembrandt, and other masters of art. In a series of hilarious parodies, Sylvain Coissard and Alexis Lemoine answer the nagging questions of art history: What caused Munch’s subject to scream? Why is Van Gogh’s Yellow Bedroom so suspiciously tidy? Why is Cézanne wearing a bandage in his famous self-portrait? The (True!) History of Art is for anyone who wants to know what happened before the Mona Lisa smiled. Or, rather, what might have happened

In 1850, China was the "sick man of Asia". Now it is set to become the most powerful nation on earth. The Penguin History of Modern China shows how turbulent that journey has been. For 150 years China has endured as a victim of brutality on an unmatched scale, of oppression, war and famine. This makes its current position as the newest and, arguably, most important global superpower all the more extraordinary. Jonathan Fenby's clear, authoritative and brilliantly written account of China's recent past, now updated to take in the ascendency of Xi Jinping and China's global ambitions, is the definitive guide to this remarkable transformation

Daniel Defoe was an English trader, writer, pamphleteer and journalist. He is most famous for his novel "Robinson Crusoe", which is second only to the Bible in its number of translations. Irreverent and ironic, The Political History of the Devil is a satire that examines the evolution of evil and the rise of the historical force known as "the devil." An overview of satanic influences on eighteenth-century life follows, focusing on monarchs and tyrants as well as common folk. Defoe supports his arguments not only with extensive quotes from scripture but also with citations from other sources, including Milton's "Paradise Lost."

The sublime collection of 418 superbly detailed paintings of hummingbirds by the great artist John Gould, the 19th century naturalist painter often referred to as the British Audubon, represents all the known species on the planet at the time and is the most complete ever produced. Like Audubon, Gould depicted the birds as they are in life, in their native habitats, which was still a revolutionary approach at the time. Yet Unlike Audubon, Gould travelled widely across the globe and the exquisite hummingbirds he painted so beautifully represent all the known species at the time and haled from the most remote and exotic ecosystems on the planet. In their essay for the book, co-writers Joel and Laura Oppenheimer tell the story of Gould s colourful life and place his work in the context of the times, when exploration of science and the world s natural wonders was at an all time high

Chocolate - "the food of the Gods" - has had a long and eventful history. It's story is expertly told here by the doyen of Maya studies, Michael Coe, and his late wife, Sophie. The book begins 3,000 years ago in the Mexican jungles and goes on to draw on aspects of archaeology, botany and socio-economics. Used as currency and traded by the Aztecs, chocolate arrived in Europe via the conquistadors, and was soon a favourite drink with aristocrats. By the 19th century and industrialization, chocolate became a food for the masses - until its revival in our own time as a luxury item. Chocolate has also been giving up some of it's secrets to modern neuroscientists, who have been investigating how flavour perception is mediated by the human brain. And, finally, the book closes with two contemporary accounts of how chocolate manufacturers have (or have not) been dealing with the ethical side of the industry

Lawrence's reputation as a novelist has often meant that his achievements in poetry have failed to receive the recognition they deserve. This edition brings together, in a form he himself sanctioned, his Collected Poems of 1928, the unexpurgated version of Pansies, and Nettles, adding to these volumes the contents of the two notebooks in which he was still writing poetry when he died in 1930. It therefore allows the reader to trace the development of Lawrence as a poet and appreciate the remarkable originality and distinctiveness of his achievement. Not all the poems reprinted here are masterpieces but there is more than enough quality to confirm Lawrence's status as one of the greatest English writers of the twentieth century
