One of the UK’s best-known scientists shows how life on Earth is ruled by our nearest star which nourishes and destroys all life. What connects the flow of solar energy through plants and that of wealth through society? How does the sun rule our memory and what effect do cloudy skies have on Scottish life expectancy? Here Comes the Sun dazzlingly links science, politics and culture. Steve Jones is a Senior Research Fellow at University College London. He gave the Reith Lectures in 1991 and presented a BBC TV series on human genetics and evolution in 1996. [112]
