REVIEWS

Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s previous book, on humanity’s relationship with the sea, contained a stunning series of images that often seemed to come from another planet. This new volume takes a different perspective
In 1863, seven plucky Victorians embarked upon Thomas Cook’s first ‘Conducted Tour of Switzerland’. One of their number, Jemima Anne Morrell, kept a journal and, a century-and-a-half later, Diccon Bewes decided to follow in her footsteps
There are two aspects of this book that are of particular interest. The first is Gabriel Lafitte’s commentary on the sharp sense of industrial inferiority felt by China’s Communists in 1949, and their belief that fast-paced industrialisation was essential
When Australian adventurer Tim Cope arrived in Hungary in 2007 he became the first person in living memory to retrace the steps of Genghis Khan and later Mongolian hordes on their epic, 10,000-kilometre path of conquest from Mongolia to Europe
David Pickford is one of Britain’s leading climbers, but his photographic debut is much more than a mere climbing book. It delights and surprises with its breadth of vision and technical virtuosity
In Remaking London, Ben Campkin provides an engaging and powerful account of the contradictions of urban regeneration, a ‘slippery’ process that too often removes ‘precisely the qualities and activities it claims to engender’
