Each volume in this Collected Essays series brings together a selection of articles by a leading authority on a particular subject. The articles are drawn from a wide range of journals, conference proceedings and books. The collections make readily available the authors' own selections of their most important writings on specific themes, together with an introduction which outlines the context of the work and comments on its significance and potential. The collected essays complement each other to give a retrospective view of the author's achievements and a developmental picture of a subject area. Some volumes include critiques of the author's work which have called for a response and other contain previously unpublished essays on the selected subject.
