Alien Empire: Explanation of the Lives of Insects by Christopher O'Toole

With the help of computer animation and microscopic photography, the book creates a natural history from a science-fiction angle, and shows how, in their appearance and behaviour, insects are as close to an alien life-form as anything on earth.
