    What is Humanism?

    All about humanism and what it means to be a humanist, living without believing in a god. What does it mean to be a humanist? Is humanism a new idea? How do people live their lives without religious beliefs? The first of its kind aimed at the new curriculum for upper primary and lower secondary school children, this book will examine how humanists respond to fundamental questions about morals and ethics, the origins of life, religion and the state. It will look at how humanists mark the milestones of birth, marriage and death. How do people without belief in God live moral and fulfilled lives, with respect for humankind and the universe? A thought-provoking approach will encourage readers to think about the big questions for themselves. The book will include contributions from a number of prominent humanists, such as Stephen Fry, Camila Batmanghelidjh, Philip Pullman, Jim Al-Khalili, Natalie Haynes and Shappi Khorsandi, who will explain their own philosophy and tell us what is important to them.

    Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Antarctic Expedition

    The awe-inspiring story of Ernest Shackleton and his epic expedition to cross Antarctica, one of the planet's most hostile environments. In 1914, Ernest Shackleton and his team set out to cross Antarctica going via the South Pole. However, in 1915, Shackleton's ship, the Endurance, became trapped in ice. Shackleton's crew eventually had to abandon ship and live on the ice in freezing temperatures and blizzards, inadequately clothed and with only the food they could catch from the sea. Shackleton and five crew members set off on an epic voyage in a small, open boat to find help in one of the planet's most uninhabited and hostile environments, eventually returning months later to successfully rescue all of the men. This incredible story is retold in vivid detail using quotes from Shackleton and men on the expedition, and is illustrated with contemporary photographs and artefacts. The story of this expedition is one of the most astonishing feats of exploration and human endeavour ever recorded.
