A World Without Bees

The Mysterious Decline of the Honeybee and what it Means for us By A. Benjamin and B. McCallum

“A third of all that we eat, and much of what we wear, relies on pollination by honeybees. So if – or when – the world loses its black and yellow workers, the consequences will be dire. What is behind this catastrophe? “Part eulogy, part global wake-up call, the book is highly readable, and makes light work of hard evidence” Elliott Cannel, PAN Europe Newsletter. ”If you want a story that shows how our species is beginning to walk dangerously out of step with the rest of nature, then you need look no further than this highly enjoyable, polished, well-researched homage to the honeybee.” Robin McKie, The Observer. ”The plight of the honeybee is examined by Alison Benjamin and Brian McCallum in their surprisingly moving book. In it, the duo reveal why the creatures are disappearing, the dire consequences this can have on our own survival and what we can do to reverse the sad trend.” Metro. ”The success of A World Without Bees lies in its explanation of the challenges faced by the honeybee population and the intensiveness of commercial beekeeping, especially in the US.” Ian Douglas, Sunday Telegraph. ”An important and timely book.”- Richard Jones, entomologist, BBC Wildlife Magazine Book of the Month.
