Bees have been a source of fascination since antiquity, with writers hailing them as an example of benevolent industry and social cohesion. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs and historic prints and paintings, this volume explores bees’ lives and habits, the medicinal properties of their honey and wax, the craft of beekeeping, and the dangers they – and we – face from pesticides. Scholarly but eminently readable, the book also celebrates the role of these fascinating insects in myth, folklore, literature and art.
