The story of human history - from a bird’s eye view

History isn’t so much about the passage of time as the study of change - how did we get from then to now, from there to here? To write the history of birds and people, you can look at how they’ve changed us, or you can look at how we’ve changed them. This book seeks to do the second thing; this is a book about our place in their history.

“It’s not like anything else that I know of, not like how other people are writing about birds right now” Stephen Rutt

“Fresh and compelling… has the mood-music soundtrack that blights so much nature writing turned to mute” John Bevis

“A marvelously unsettling book, reorienting us and opening new perspectives… carries us into the strange and humbling timescales and lives of birds, revealing our own history in a startling new light” David George Haskell

“A formidable piece of work. Extremely well written, with a dazzling lexicon and a roadrunner pace that can turn on a sixpence” Tim Dee

About the Publisher



Uniformbooks began in 2011 as a flexible and open imprint for the visual and literary arts, cultural geography and history, music and bibliographic studies. The concern is with the connections between creative and academic work, and printed formats, as well as the generality of the series. Uniformagazine is intended as a quarterly occurrence alongside the books, for the variety of writers, artists and contributors that we work with and publish.
