A symbol of strength, survival despite hardship and - more recently - the perils of global warming, the polar bear wears many different faces across the world. Polar Bears: A Life Under Threat is an uncompromising exploration of the animal behind the mythos. Rawicki's anthology transports us to the Arctic: the bears' home territory. His photographs depict playful cubs, hunting mothers and solitary adults on their yearly migration. The bears' innate curiosity shines through, as they peer through windows and rear up on their hind legs to study the camera. As well as trekking across miles of dazzling snow, they forage in forests and towns - leading to a striking series of photographs that document the relationship between bear, man and environment. Accompanying these images are a series of essays, poems and even a quiz, from the minds of Michel Rawicki and his contributors: Hubert Reeves, astrophysicist, and Remy Marion, author of several books about the polar regions. They explain the challenges encountered by polar bears in the modern age, and explore the future of a species threatened by climate change and pollution.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'...includes images of polar bears twisting in the snow, ice and water "to clean their fur and to enjoy," Mr. Rawicki said. There also are poignant images of bears caring for their young, surrounded by melting ice, and isolated on dry land.' -- The New York Times. 'Twenty-five years in the making, "Polar Bears - A life under threat" is a pictorial ode to the iconic animal and its endangered habitat, as well as a timely reminder of its uncertain future.' -- Yatzer; 'The increasing hardship faced by this posterchild of climate change is all too evident. Yet this is a glorious and luxurious book, surely one of the finest collections of polar bear photography published in recent times.' -- Paul McGuinness - BBC Wildlife;
