Paperback
Find out how the passage of energy from one organism to another creates a food chain. This book explores how the need to find and consume food creates an interlinking chain between organisms, from the producers of energy to the consumers. It also looks at what happens when a food chain breaks down and the disastrous consequences this can have for the organisms in the chain.

Includes fieldwork investigations that show how to identify food chains and webs and fascinating fact boxes that offer in-depth information on topics such as echolocation. An activity project shows students at Key Stage 3 how to build their own food web.

The six books in the Living Processes series look at the processes all living organisms must carry out in order to stay alive. From feeding and drinking through to breathing and reproducing, it explores the differing ways in which organisms carry them out.

Fully updated in 2015, this title examines the roots of the Arab-Israeli conflict as well as the current divisions in Israel and Palestine including unrest over water and oil, the growth of terrorist organisations and Israel’s relationships with the West and their Middle Eastern neighbours.

Case studies show real-life experiences from a variety of diverse sources. Viewpoint panels present each side of the argument from those involved in the conflict, politicians and the media. The panels look at who is behind each quote and suggest points to consider to guide the debate. Timelines, fact boxes and maps put the events into context.

Why do some places experience conflict? What is it like to live in a country torn apart by unrest and violence? Is there a way to resolve the problems? The Our World Divided series explores these questions as it looks at today’s most contentious issues affecting areas of conflict around the world.

From the creators of You Are Stardust, the book uses lyrical text grounded in current science alongside wonderfully detailed art to present problems as doorways to creative thinking. Wild Ideas encourages an enquiry-based approach to learning, inviting readers to indulge their sense of wonder and curiosity by observing the natural world, engaging with big ideas and asking questions.

“This glorious synthesis of art and science invites discussion about our place in the world, where we come from, how we change and what makes us feel alive … A terrific book for nurturing curiosity and fostering a feeling of enchantment.”

Paperback
India has been home to many great empires, but one of the greatest was one of the first. The Mauryans ruled India more than 2,000 years ago. They left few physical traces, however, and their remarkable achievements were largely forgotten.

One name survived: Emperor Ashoka was celebrated for spreading the Buddhist faith in South Asia. This book reveals the full story of Ashoka, and the dynasty who ruled India for barely 130 years yet had an enduring influence on its history.

A part of the Great Empires series which covers a particular empire or regional series of empires. Each title charts its history from its rise to its eventual fall. Concise text and supporting boxes explore the reasons for the empire’s success-and its failure-and explain the mechanics of governing the empire and the experience of living under it.

The Shang disappeared from history for millennia before chance discoveries in the early 20th century revealed a glimpse of China’s first great dynasty. More than 3,500 years ago, the Shang created a state on the Yellow River from where they came to dominate an extensive empire. As this book reveals, over the last 100 years, historians have built a detailed picture of a highly sophisticated civilisation, which laid the foundations for much of modern Chinese life.

Each book in the Great Empires series covers a particular empire or regional series of empires, charting its history from its rise to its eventual fall.
