Routledge are well-known for publishing books across the social sciences and humanities that challenge conventional wisdom, and provide new ways of interpreting the world.

GlassHouse is the leading publisher of texts in the areas of socio-legal studies and critical legal theory, specialising in books that offer a fresh perspective on law and contemporary legal issues.

And, particularly, books that draw upon the insights and frameworks of other disciplines: sociology, politics or philosophy; but also other social science and humanities disciplines, such as cultural studies, geography, economics, social policy, history and literature.
Routledge is one of the few commercial publishers who continue to publish and invest in specialised academic research. At a time when many publishers have chosen to focus almost exclusively on student textbooks, Routledge is committed to publishing important research produced by the academic community. Our research titles form part of the successful Routledge Research programme which is recognised by academics and libraries the world over, ensuring the books achieve a worldwide readership.
