Forthcoming: ‘Volcano: Nature and Culture’ 9 March 2012

Posted by admin in book reviews, volcano culture.

Exciting news from the website of the wonderful Reaktion Books: this spring sees the launch of a new series under the title Earth, exploring the natural and cultural history of natural phenomena, and one of the first books to be published in this series is Volcano: Nature and Culture by James Hamilton.

Author of books on, among others, J. M. W. Turner and Michael Faraday, James Hamilton, University Curator and Honorary Reader at the University of Birmingham, curated the exhibition Volcano – from Turner to Warhol at Compton Verney in 2010.

The book is due to be published in May this year, and I hope to be reviewing it here in due course.
