'A brave writer whose books open up fundamental questions about life and art’ Telegraph In this remarkable, inspiring collection of essays, acclaimed writer and critic Olivia Laing makes a brilliant case for why art matters, especially in the turbulent political weather of the twenty first century. Funny Weather brings together a career’s worth of Laing’s writing about art and culture, examining its role in our political and emotional lives. She profiles Jean-Michel Basquiat and Georgia O’Keefe, interviews Hilary Mantel and Ali Smith, writes love letters to David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, and explores loneliness and technology, women and alcohol, sex and the body. With characteristic originality and compassion, she celebrates art as a force of resistance and repair, an antidote to a frightening political time. We’re often told art can’t change anything. Laing argues that it can. It changes how we see the world. It makes plain inequalities and it offers fertile new ways of living. ‘A warm, thinking, enticing sweep of a book, like spending the afternoon with your brainiest friend.’ Kate Mosse, author of The Burning Chambers

Today we are witnessing an increased use of data visualization in society. Across domains such as work, education and the news, various forms of graphs, charts and maps are used to explain, convince and tell stories. In an era in which more and more data are produced and circulated digitally, and digital tools make visualization production increasingly accessible, it is important to study the conditions under which such visual texts are generated, disseminated and thought to be of societal benefit. This book is a contribution to the multi-disciplined and multi-faceted conversation concerning the forms, uses and roles of data visualization in society. Do data visualizations do 'good' or 'bad'? Do they promote understanding and engagement, or do they do ideological work, privileging certain views of the world over others? The contributions in the book engage with these core questions from a range of disciplinary perspectives.

This is the story of a King who met his Queen on the evening of a lunar eclipse. They fell madly in love and a few months later, during a solar eclipse, the Prince Sunbeam was born. They all lived in a large castle, at the heart of a beautiful Kingdom. Sunbeams bedroom had a moon, a sun, clouds and a bright blue sky painted on the ceiling. Sunbeam was a brown-eyed, brown-haired baby, extremely calm and smiley. He never cried. He spent the first months of his life in the sunniest Kingdom anyone had ever known. No one had ever seen such good weather in a very long time. There was not one cloud in the sky and a light breeze cooled the air down to the perfect temperature: never too warm, never too cold.

In this wide-ranging Very Short Introduction to climate, Mark Maslin considers all aspects of the global climate system, exploring and explaining the different components that control climate on Earth. He considers the processes that allow energy to reach the Earth and how it is redistributed around the planet by the ocean-atmosphere system; the relationship and differences between climate and the weather; how climate has affected life on Earth and human settlements; and the cyclic and quasi-cyclic features of climate such as the Milankovitch cycles and El Nino. He concludes by touching on the issue of climate change, and outlines some of the approaches that are now being taken to tackle it.
