Profile Books has acquired Noise: A Human History of Sound and Listening by Professor David Hendy, which ties in with a BBC Radio 4 series in March 2013.
Publisher Daniel Crewe bought UK and Commonwealth rights from Caroline Dawnay at United Agents. The book accompanies a 30-part BBC Radio 4 series which will run over a six-week period in spring 2013.
Hendy explores the role of sound and listening in 100,000 years of human history, from the drumming and chanting of prehistoric people, to the 24-hour chatter of the 21st century.
Crewe said the book and the radio show were “incredibly ambitious”.
