Bird Flu: Everything You Need to Know
by John FarndonForeword by Tony Minson

A Bird Flu pandemic is inevitable - so we are told. First identified in China, this apparently merciless virus, which originated in chickens, supposedly has the potential to mutate and kill thousands, even millions, of people. But how accurate is this picture? Is it a panic created by the media? Or a genuine threat we should protect ourselves against immediately - and how can we do this? What exactly is it and what do terms like "mutate" actually mean? John Farndon answers these questions and also investigates: the history of pandemics - and how this one might be different; the last great flu outbreak - the Spanish flu of 1919; what a virus is and how it spreads; how antiviral drugs and vaccines work; how the statistics of death rates are worked out; what the government's emergency plans are. Whether you are worried about the implications of bird flu for you and your family, or you are simply interested in learn more than what you see and read in the media, this book is for you.

50 Facts That Should Change the World 2.0
by Jessica Williams

Jessica Williams revisits her classic series of snapshots of life in the twenty-first century. Revised and updated with lots of new material, this book is every bit as vital as the first edition. From the inequalities and absurdities of the so-called developed world to the vast scale of suffering wreaked by war, famine, and AIDS in developing countries, it paints a picture of incredible contrasts.
The 2.0 edition again contains an eclectic selection of facts addressing a broad range of global issues, now with added emphasis on climate change, the decline in human rights and democratic freedoms around the world, the unexpected global impact of corporate growth, sports and media madness and inequality, and lots of updated facts and figures. Each is followed by a short essay explaining the story behind the fact, fleshing out the bigger problem lurking behind the numbers. Real-life stories, anecdotes, and case studies help to humanize the figures and make clear the human impact of the bald statistics. All of the facts remind us that whether we like to think of it or not, the world is interconnected and civilization is a fragile concept.
