Reviews

“It is clear that a great deal of energy has been put into producing this volume, and it is undoubtedly a useful and well-timed book. … serves as a strong and important reflection of the project’s aims and objectives at its current stage. … offers a tantalising promise of what the project will ultimately contribute: an informed and valuable consideration of how the academic book must develop if it is to fulfil the needs of those who engage with it.” (Leah Tether, San Francisco Review of Books, sanfranciscoreviewofbooks.com, April, 2017)
