We publish for a global audience of scholars, researchers and students, with a list that features some of the world's leading social scientists.

Dr Jane Monckton-Smith’s book, Murder, Gender and the Media: Narratives of Dangerous Love, has won the Feminist and Women's Studies Association (FWSA) book prize for 2013. One of the judges commented: 'It is clear and highly engaging from the start, well written and perfectly structured, providing convincing insights into media representations and the inside workings of the police. This brilliantly written, thought provoking book engages readers throughout, and will make useful contributions to wider feminist theory and violence against women policies.' The award has been announced on the FWSA blog.
