The Naked Nude

978-0-500-23892-9

“Make[s] the case for a more diverse approach to a timeless subject.”

— Gallery + Studio

“An in-depth look at our contemporary and historical fixation with the body and the nude.”

— The Huffington Post

“Though today’s nude is confrontational, the effect is rarely distancing; instead, Borzello concludes, its honesty forges an emotional bond between artist and viewer.”

Naturalists in Paradise: Wallace, Bates and Spruce in the Amazon

978-0-500-25210-9

“I can’t imagine a better biographer for these three men than John Hemming…[His] most evocative accounts concern the many indigenous peoples that the three explorers met. There is a great tenderness in his descriptions, mixed with an immense respect and appreciation for their customs and traditions…Naturalists in Paradise is a story of adventure and tenacious endurance, told by an author who underpins the research with his personal knowledge of the Amazon.”

— The Wall Street Journal

“The author of this most intriguing ‘triography’ of Bates, Spruce and Wallace is the person best qualified to write it …Hemming’s crowning achievement is the full integration of the stories of Bates, Spruce and Wallace. Wallace has been the focus of numerous books, while few narratives have concentrated on the great scientific contributions by Bates or Spruce. Hemming makes a very clear and compelling case that the other two’s friendship, partnership, conversations, correspondence and research amply influenced Wallace’s thinking and his great theory.”

— Washington Post

“In Naturalists in Paradise, John Hemming uses the stories of these three iconic Victorian explorers to show how the experience of being in the field is intensively individual and as idiosyncratic as the people themselves. There is no one better to explore their journeys than Hemming, who not only is a great scholar of the Amazon and its people but also has, himself, trodden in the footsteps of these men, a fact that allows him to empathize charmingly with their individual tales. Hemming portrays the personalities of each of these men brilliantly…The most striking theme in Hemming’s book is the powerful description of the importance of collaboration in field work and in science in general… Today’s scientists working with biodiversity and ecosystem services could take a cue from these Victorian naturalists who explored with both their eyes and minds open.”

— Museum Store Magazine

“Focused squarely on the Neanderthals in their own right—how they lived, how they evolved, how they inhabited Europe for at least two hundred millennia…The Neanderthals Rediscovered has the fresh charm of treating human evolution as a curious story that leads to the Neanderthals, rather than as a moral tale that rises ever upward and inevitably to us godlike moderns.”
