Welcome to our second quarterly Online Catalogue for Routledge Major Works, Routledge Revivals and Routledge Library Editions, publicising our forthcoming titles for April-June.

We highlight key series, showcase the broad spectrum of subject areas we have on offer, and pick our 'bestselling' titles from the first quarter of the year. Our detailed FAQ sections give you the opportunity to learn more about each individual programme and what they can offer you.

The next three months prove a busy publication period for Routledge Reference. Our Revivals programme is gaining steam with thirty-one titles publishing between April - June this year, including two collections: The Collected Works of James E. Meade and A. C. Ewing on Moral Philosophy.

There have also been some exciting new releases from our Major Works and Routledge Library Editions lists, including a particularly timely two: The Making of Olympic Cities and Routledge Library Editions: Banking and Finance.
