CLIMATE, CARBON & RENEWABLE

Knowledge, as always, is a powerful tool and citizens and corporate leaders are arming themselves with knowledge around the challenges of climate change. Books are at the forefront and we've compiled a search across our site for books on 'carbon, climate, renewables' bringing up over 700 titles. You will find books on all sides of the issues as the battle of ideas plays out.

SKIN DEEP

Phillipa McGuinness has interviewed plastic surgeons, dermatologists, burn survivors, beauticians, melanoma sufferers, people who suffer from body dysmorphias, victims and perpetrators of racism, and all kinds of people who are and are not comfortable in their own skin, to write a book where science meets art and culture, history and politics. Philosophy too, given skin is the point where our self, and our self-perception, struggles with or embraces the way others see us, and the way we see ourselves.

YOUNG BRAINS WANTED

National Science Week is Australia's annual celebration of science and technology.
