  • 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die

    By Paul Gravett
    Authors:
    Paul Gravett
    Over the centuries, comic books and their offshoots, such as graphic novels, and bandes dessinées have evolved into a phenomenally popular, influential, and unique art form with which we can express our opinions, our fantasies, our nightmares, and our dreams. In short: comics are emphatically no longer just for kids. This diverse, constantly evolving medium is truly coming into its own in the 21st century, from Hollywood's blockbuster adaptations of super-powered caped crusaders to the global spread of Japan's manga and its spinoffs, and from award-winning graphic novels such as Maus and Persepolis to new forms such as online webcomix. But comics also have a long and rich history, dating back at least to the Swiss teacher Rodolphe Töpffer in the early 19th century, and far earlier in China.1001 Comic Books You Must Read Before You Die is the perfect introduction to this dynamic and globally popular medium. There have been other guides to the best comic books, but none has embraced every genre and scoured the globe to glean the very greatest works of sequential art, graphic literature, bandes dessinées, tebeos, fumetti, manga, manhwa, komiks, strips, historietas, quadrinhos, beeldverhalen, and plain old comics.This authoritative guide is organized according to the year of first publication in the country of origin. An opening section acknowledges pioneering pre-1900 masterpieces, followed by sections divided by decade, creating a fascinating year-by-year chronicle of the comics medium worldwide.

From the earliest recorded conflicts, involving just a few thousand foot soldiers, to the horrors of modern, chemical warfare, 1001 Battles That Changed the Course of History looks at the reasons why people go to war and both the short- and long-term consequences of battles of all sizes. To understand modern conflicts, people need to know what has gone before.

    The 21st Century is Making You Fat

    By Pat Thomas
    Authors:
    Pat Thomas
    Obesity is now officially at epidemic proportions throughout the Western world. New scientific evidence suggests that the time-honoured reasons for weight gain, namely too much food and too little exercise may not be the whole story. Environmental and social factors rife in the 21st century, such as insufficient sleep, overheating of homes and workplaces, and an overuse of prescription drugs may also be to blame. Furthermore, exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals, known as 'chemical calories', may be making all of us vulnerable to weight-gain. Featuring scientifically-reasoned advice, this book reveals the full story about the obesity crisis our society is facing, and what we can do to improve our own lifestyles and the health of the country on the whole.
