Peter Sís's remarkable biography The Pilot and the Little Prince celebrates the author of The Little Prince, one of the most beloved books in the world. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was born in France in 1900, when airplanes were just being invented. Antoine dreamed of flying and grew up to be a pilot—and that was when his adventures began. He found a job delivering mail by plane, which had never been done before. He and his fellow pilots traveled to faraway places and discovered new ways of getting from one place to the next. Antoine flew over mountains and deserts. He battled winds and storms. He tried to break aviation records, and sometimes he even crashed. From his plane, Antoine looked down on the earth and was inspired to write about his life and his pilot-hero friends in memoirs and in fiction.

Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year, Private Peaceful is by the third Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo, award-winning author of War Horse.

Période fascinante allant de la chute de l’Empire romain d’Occident en 476 aux Grandes Découvertes en 1492, le Moyen Âge couvre dix siècles d’histoire fourmillant d’innovations et de vicissitudes. Sauriez-vous les nommer ? En quatre-vingts récits évoquant la religion, la justice, la politique ou encore les sciences et les arts, cet ouvrage nous plonge dans ce foisonnant Moyen Âge et révèle à quel point son influence perdure dans notre société actuelle. Des termes et expressions d’aujourd’hui comme la banlieue, la courtoisie, faire les quatre cents coups, tenir le haut du pavé, trouvent leur origine à cette époque. Notre patrimoine architectural, avec ses loges maçonniques, ses cathédrales et ses châteaux forts, est aussi hérité du Moyen Âge, tout comme notre actualité, avec la guerre sainte des croisades et le terrorisme des Assassins. Le Moyen Âge n’est pas non plus exempt de règles et coutumes déconcertantes : ordalies, peines d’infamie, exposition des cadavres... et d’interprétations scienti ques et médicales déroutantes, à l’image des maladies issues du péché ou des saignées. Tantôt avant-gardiste, tantôt décadent, découvrez ce surprenant Moyen Âge !

Call it “Zen and the Art of Farming” or a “Little Green Book,” Masanobu Fukuoka’s manifesto about farming, eating, and the limits of human knowledge presents a radical challenge to the global systems we rely on for our food. At the same time, it is a spiritual memoir of a man whose innovative system of cultivating the earth reflects a deep faith in the wholeness and balance of the natural world. As Wendell Berry writes in his preface, the book “is valuable to us because it is at once practical and philosophical. It is an inspiring, necessary book about agriculture because it is not just about agriculture.” Trained as a scientist, Fukuoka rejected both modern agribusiness and centuries of agricultural practice, deciding instead that the best forms of cultivation mirror nature’s own laws. Over the next three decades he perfected his so-called “do-nothing” technique: commonsense, sustainable practices that all but eliminate the use of pesticides, fertilizer, tillage, and perhaps most significantly, wasteful effort. Whether you’re a guerrilla gardener or a kitchen gardener, dedicated to slow food or simply looking to live a healthier life, you will find something here—you may even be moved to start a revolution of your own.

The study of electrochemistry is pertinent to a wide variety of fields, including bioenergetics, environmental sciences, and engineering sciences. In addition, electrochemistry plays a fundamental role in specific applications as diverse as the conversion and storage of energy and the sequencing of DNA. Intended both as a basic course for undergraduate students and as a reference work for graduates and researchers, Analytical and Physical Electrochemistry covers two fundamental aspects of electrochemistry: electrochemistry in solution and interfacial electrochemistry. By bringing these two subjects together into a single volume, the author clearly establishes the links between the physical foundation and the analytical applications of electrochemistry. The philosophy of Analytical and Physical Electrochemistry has been to publish all the mathematical derivations in detail, allowing you, if you so desire, to follow the calculations that lead to the main results. With this rigorous approach, the author has provided a book of reference constructed from first principles. In this respect, the nomenclature and standards of the IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) are observed.
