Riassunto:

Take a deep breath. Air—without it, life on Earth would cease to exist. Though not usually seen, its presence is relied upon. At once both ethereal and physical, air has been associated with flight and spirit, and yet it has progressively become a territory that can be claimed through communications, warfare, travel, and scientific exploration. At the same time, air is no longer a completely reliable part of our daily life: like water, it has become an environmental element that must be watched closely for quality and purity.

            A Matter of Air investigates the meanings of air over the last three centuries, including our modern concern over emissions and climate change. Steven Connor looks at the human relationship with air, both positive and negative. His explorations include the dangers posed by radio atmospherics, poison gas, and haze as well as our continued fascination with effervescence and explosives. Drawing ideas from religion, science, art, literature, and philosophy, A Matter of Air creates a comprehensive history of the human perception of air. Thoroughly researched and written with wit and quirky enthusiasm, the book will appeal to a wide range of general readers interested in the environment, human history, and our most essential aspects of life.

About the Author:

Steven Connor is professor of modern literature and theory in the School of Literature and Humanities at Birkbeck College, University of London. His other books include Fly and The Book of Skin, both published by Reaktion Books.

Descrizione libro Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Air - without it, life on Earth would cease to exist. It is invisible and yet always present in one way or another, and so people have long associated air with flight, spirit, transcendence and optimism. But as humans have progressively taken control of air through communications, warfare, travel and scientific exploration, the perception of air has changed. No longer is air a completely reliable part of our daily life but is instead another piece of the environment that must be watched closely for quality and purity. The Matter of Air investigates the meanings of air over the last three centuries, including our modern concern over emissions and climate change. Our concern is clearly not unfounded: from the impact of nitrous oxide to development of gas heating and lighting, humans have undeniably had an effect on the atmosphere. Eminent author Steven Connor looks at this effect by exploring radio atmospherics and poison gas, as well as the fear of air pollution caused by cremation, and the worry over haze. The book also discusses our growing fascination with air and aerial process through the allure of effervescence and the development of explosives. The Matter of Air presents a cultural approach to the history of air, drawing from religion, science, art, literature and philosophy to create a comprehensive history of the human perception of air. Thoroughly researched and written with wit and joy, the book will appeal to any reader interested in pollution, natural and human history, and the relationship between human beings and air.
