When We Walked on the Moon

When We Walked on the Moon

Author: David Long Illustrator: Sam Kalda Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/06/2019

This beautifully illustrated children's book tells the story of the Apollo Missions, when incredible intelligence, engineering and bravery allowed humans to stand on the surface of something other than Earth for the very first time. When I first looked back at the Earth, standing on the surface of the Moon, I cried. From the 1969 first moon landing to the amazing rescue of Apollo 13, each chapter tells the story of a different mission. Humorous details bring the astronauts to life: discover how the astronauts of Apollo 12 were so over-excited when they stepped onto the Moon that Mission Control had to tell them to quieten down, and Shepard (Apollo 14) somehow managed to smuggle a golf club onto his spacecraft! Published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, this is the perfect book for any child who has ever looked up at the moon and wondered what it might be like to go there.

Science, Belief and Society International Perspectives on Religion, Non-Religion and the Public Understanding of Science

Science, Belief and Society International Perspectives on Religion, Non-Religion and the Public Understanding of Science

Author: David Long, Susanne (Leipzig University) Kind, Lois (University of Kent) Lee Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/05/2019

The relationship between science and belief has been a prominent subject of public debate for many years, one that has relevance to everything from science communication, health and education to immigration and national values. Yet, sociological analysis of these subjects remains surprisingly scarce. This wide-ranging book critically reviews the ways in which religious and non-religious belief systems interact with scientific theories and practices. Contributors explore how, for some secularists, 'science' forms an important part of social identity. Others examine how many contemporary religious movements justify their beliefs by making a claim upon science. Moving beyond the traditional focus on the United States, the book shows how debates about science and belief are firmly embedded in political conflict, class, community and culture.

London's 100 Most Extraordinary Buildings

London's 100 Most Extraordinary Buildings

Author: David Long Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/05/2018

London's 100 Most Extraordinary Buildings reveals the stories behind the capital's strangest and most enigmatic buildings. While some are open to the public - if you know who to ask - others are strictly off limits, which only heightens the sense of mystery around them. Still others are so familiar that few ever stop to consider how curious they actually are. South of the river, for example, the city's widest building at nearly 1,000ft has been favourably compared to the Winter Palace. Elsewhere you can find an arts centre built of old shipping containers, a Victorian explorer lying dead in a tent, acres of secret government underground offices, and even a private tunnel used for running cable cars under the Thames. Think you know London? Think again ...
