    Paperback – 2015-10-01

Routledge publishes textbooks for the newest subject areas as well as the most established, and for students at all stages of their degree.

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.

The Handbooks and Companions series provides a cutting-edge overview of classic research, current research and future trends in the Social Sciences and Humanities.

Each Handbook draws together newly commissioned work to provide a comprehensive overview of a sub-discipline.

  • The international team of contributors to each Handbook has been specially chosen for their expertise and knowledge in the field.
  • Each Handbook is introduced and contextualized by leading subject specialists, lending coherence and authority to each volume.

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.
