All our texts are widely researched and reviewed by active teachers in the field, and often trialled in courses to ensure they meet the needs of both lecturers and students. Our emphasis on pedagogy and text development, combined with lively and imaginative design, supports students with all the information they need for their course, and guides them to further study and independent learning.
Each Handbook draws together newly commissioned work to provide a comprehensive overview of a sub-discipline.
The Handbooks and Companions address new developments in the Social Sciences and Humanities, while at the same time providing an authoritative guide to theory and method, the key sub-disciplines and the primary debates of today.
