Mark Cocker has spent forty years studying the glorious colours and beautiful songs of birds, covering eighty-one countries over seven continents. With hundreds of contributors, from esteemed academics and writers to the eagle hunters of Mongolia, he explores our evolving perception of birds, drawing on literature, art, cuisine, folklore and politics.

With breathtaking images by award-winning photographer David Tipling, Cocker weaves a narrative of unparalleled scope and knowledge. Birds and People is a true labour of love and a remarkable testimony to the powerful relationship between birds and mankind.
