BETHANY BETTANY
Fred D'Aguiar

NEWTON: THE MAKING OF GENIUS
Patricia Fara

A former Finley Fellow, Patricia Fara has written many acclaimed books. Newton: The making of a Genius, is not a biography of Newton, but an account of how he became famous first as a national hero, and then as a scientific genius. Fara investigates why so many people now believe that he had immense intellectual power.

FEAST: Why Humans Share Food
Martin Jones

In this book Martin Jones reconstructs the development of the meal, with the help of the latest archeological techniques: from chimpanzees at a kill to University Professors at a formal feast, from a Roman banquet to a TV dinner. Spanning half a million years 'Feast' reveals the history of the meal and its huge impact on both society and the ecology of the planet.

AN INTELLIGENT PERSON'S GUIDE TO GENETICS
Adrian Woolfson 

Until recently, Adrian Woolfson was the Charles and Katherine Darwin Research Fellow at Darwin. This book argues that the DNA record can help to reconstruct our past, but it will also help to shape our future, as humankind will soon be able to redesign itself from first principles. Adrian argues that we need a manifesto for life to guide this work.
