Routledge-Solaris Focus on Strategy, Wisdom and Skill


About the Series

The Routledge-Solaris Focus on Strategy, Wisdom and Skill series aims to be a vital collection of inter-disciplinary short-form books bringing together the experiences and insights of practitioners and academics to provide practical guidance and solutions for a wide range of readers. We’re looking for the following:

• Interdisciplinary books examining the boundaries of two or more disciplines in Arts, Sciences or practical disciplines such as public policy, business, urban, law etc, with focus on theoretical rigour and practical relevance, written by authors with mastery of more than one discipline (innovative, paradigm-shifting think pieces), or authors with deep practitioner experience and/or PhD (applied strategy/wisdom primer)

•    Theoretical syntheses of a single discipline in layman-accessible language, written by authors with PhDs (synthetic disciplinary primer)

•    Deep practitioner insights/acumen synthesised into a conceptual framework, written by authors with decades of practitioner experience (reflective wisdom/skills primer)

If your work fits one or more of the above categories, you’re able to write accessibly and are ideally able to produce a manuscript between 35-50,000 words, then please get in touch with the series editor Dr Charles Chao Rong Phua at [email protected].
