The Beauty of the Beastly New Views on the Nature of Life


Natalie Angier, "The Beauty of the Beastly: New Views on the Nature of Life"
English | 1996 | ISBN: 0395791472, 0395718163 | 276 pages | EPUB | 0.6 MB
Natalie Angier knows all that scientists know – and sometimes more – about the power of symmetry in sexual relations, about the brutal courting habits of dolphins, about the grand deceit of orchids, about the impact of female and male preferences on evolution. She knows how scientists go about their work, and she describes their ways, their visions, and their arguments. Perhaps most poignantly, she understands the complexities and the sad necessity of death. The beauty of the natural world lies in the details, and most of those details are not the stuff of calendar art, she points out. Few writers have ever covered so many facets of biology so evocatively in one book. The Beauty of the Beastly tells us how the genius of the biological universe resides in its details and proves why, according to Timothy Ferris, author of the acclaimed Coming of Age in the Milky Way, Angier is one of the strongest and wittiest science writers in the world today.

Russia and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals
English | 2022 | ISBN: 3030956474 | 278 Pages | PDF EPUB (True) | 2.3 MB
This book sheds light on how Member States and EU neighbours relate to Russia. It includes their historical, financial and political ties, as well as the public perception of the national population vis-à-vis Russia. Each chapter builds on these factors to elucidate the country’s position towards Russia and provides a prediction on the future of these relations. This volume shows the diverse relations that the EU member states and neighbours have with Russia, spanning from tense and confrontational to more eased and friendly, highlighting the contrasts between the national state and the EU as a whole. The book also presents the reader with concrete aspects in different policy areas, via recommendations on how single countries and the EU should deal with Russia. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on 24th February 2022 will change the relationship between the West and Putin’s Russia for decades to come. No doubt that this blatant violation of International Law and the incomprehensible human suffering of Ukrainian citizens will massively change the attitude of the countries analysed in this book.
