Tom Stevenson's Champagne & Sparkling Wine Guide 2017: Full Colour Softback Edition
Please note that this is the Full Colour edition and there is a cheaper B&W edition (£9.99/$12.99/€10.99). This book looks much better in colour (the photos and graphs are optimised for colour), but the B&W edition is so much cheaper, of course. The choice of which will depend on the reader, whether he or she is more interested in the technical chapters or the buyer's guide and, of course, the budget available. This award-winning guide was first published in 1998, but relaunched in 2014 to provide the ideal platform for the Gold and Silver medal winning wines awarded by The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships (CSWWC), the most widely respected sparkling wine competition in the world. Judged by Tom Stevenson, Essi Avellan MW and Dr Tony Jordan, three of the most experienced Champagne and sparkling wine experts, the CSWWC is uniquely qualified to determine the best bubblies on the planet. Its results make this guide the ideal gift for anyone who loves a drop of fizz, from enthusiastic beginners to experts, geeks, wine-trade and winemakers. The introductory chapters are updated with the latest technology and techniques used in Champagne and elsewhere, while the tasting notes include the best of everything that goes pop, from the greatest Champagnes to the best Prosecco and everything fizzy between and beyond.

The Statue of Zeus at Olympia: New Approaches
This book began to take shape following a conference on the Statue of Zeus at Olympia held at the University of Queensland in July 2008. In line with the main themes of the conference, the book has two fundamental aims: the first is to recognise the unsurpassed reputation of the Zeus in antiquity, to move beyond the framework provided by 'the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World', and to treat the famous statue in depth, as befits its unique importance in ancient times; and, the second aim is to employ a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives in the hope of capturing more accurately than before something of that unique importance. This book is aimed at academic specialists in a variety of disciplines (such as art, archaeology, history, literature, and cultural poetics), though it should be accessible to undergraduates and certainly to research students. The audience will primarily be one interested in classical antiquity, but there are chapters which trace the story and influence of the Zeus through the Byzantine, Renaissance, and early modern periods, and into more recent centuries in both the northern and southern hemispheres.

The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia, Third Edition
Authoritative, international and up-to-date, The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia is arranged geographically and combines maps and photographs with information on all wine-growing areas, profiles of distinguished producers and assessments of individual wines. The book's easy-reference style, and wealth of practical advice, make it an unrivaled source of information for all lovers of wine -- from the occasional drinker to the connoisseur. Wines of the World. Distinguished wine authority Tom Stevenson examines the viticultural history of each wine-making country, discussing its wine-producing regions and the current reputation of its wines. He analyzes the factors affecting the taste and quality of each region's wines -- location, aspect, soil, microclimates, grape varieties, and methods of viticulture and vinification -- before assessing its appellations, the individual wine producers (chateaux or wineries), and, of course, the wines themselves. Enjoying Wine. Tom Stevenson provides practical guidelines on wine tasting, while an "author's choice" chart at the end of each section lists the very best wines. A star-rating system identifies the finest producers and highlights those offering the best value. A "taste chart" explains how to identify the flavors in a wine, and a "troubleshooter's guide" spots common wine flaws. Whether you are a newcomer wanting to explore the pleasures of wine or a wine enthusiast looking for inspiration, The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia is the book to consult again and again.
