This fully illustrated anthology showcases key images from Peter Kennard´s work as Britain´s foremost political artist over the last fifty years. The book centres around Kennard´s images, photomontages and illustrations from protests, year by year, which provoked public outrage; including Israel/Palestine protests, anti-nuclear protests, responses to austerity, climate destruction, and more. Each image is accompanied by captions detailing not only the events in question, but Kennard´s approach to the work, including the genesis of the images and the techniques employed. Ultimately, the book highlights Kennard´s extraordinary contribution to political art in the twenty-first century.

Located midway on the San Francisco Peninsula, Redwood City´s outstanding weather begat the motto, ´´Climate Best by Government Test.´´ Once a Mexican rancho, Redwood City became the port for exporting timber from the coastal mountains and later the San Mateo County seat. Through a series of contrasting vintage and modern images, this book shows the city´s amazing transformation.
Beyond images of emaciated polar bears and drought-cracked lakes, there remains a major part of climate change´s impact that the media has neglected: how our health will suffer from higher temperatures and extreme weather. From spiraling rates of asthma and allergies and spikes in heatstroke-related deaths to swarms of invasive insects carrying diseases like dengue or West Nile and increases in heart and lung disease and cancer, the effect of rising temperatures on human health will be far-reaching, and is more imminent than we think. Award-winning journalist Linda Marsa blends compelling narrative with cutting-edge science to explore the changes in Earth´s increasingly fragile support system and provide a blueprint - a ´´medical Manhattan Project´´ - detailing what we need to do to protect ourselves from this imminent medical meltdown. In the tradition of Rachel Carson´s Silent Spring, Marsa sounds the alarm on a subject that has largely been ignored by governments and policy makers, and persuasively argues why preparedness for the health effects of climate change is the most critical issue affecting our survival in the coming century. 1.
