Routledge Revivals News & Updates – Page 3

What is the Routledge Revivals programme?

Routledge Revivals is a programme designed to reissue a wealth of out-of-print and unavailable titles written by some of the leading academic scholars of the last 120 years. To date, the programme includes titles by the likes of Sir Andrew Motion, Hermione Lee, Zygmunt Bauman, Karl Jaspers, Malcolm Bradbury, Simone Weil, Emile Durkheim, Charles Kindleberger and W. Arthur Lewis.

Which subject areas do the Revivals cover?

All subjects which fall within the spectrum of the Humanities and Social Sciences, reflecting the impressive breadth and depth of the Routledge backlist. Thus far, the Revivals list is particularly strong in the areas of Sociology, Philosophy, Politics, Economics, Literature and History.

How long has the programme been active?

The first Routledge Revivals titles were published in July 2009 and a year later we have more than 120 titles available in hardback, with a substantial percentage of these already available as ebooks and some also in paperback as part of the paperbacks direct programme. Over the next year, we expect the programme to more than double in size.

Are Revivals available as e-books?

Where we've been able to acquire electronic rights, Revivals titles are also available in ebook format.

What is the difference between a Routledge Revival and a Routledge Library Edition?

Routledge Library Editions (RLEs) are also straight reissues from our backlist, but instead of being single, stand-alone volumes like the Revivals they are always released as backlist collections on a particular subject or author. RLE collections can vary in size from 5-300 volumes.

What's the difference between a Revival and a facsimile Major Work?

A facsimile Major Work will often gather diverse sources together—e.g selected chapters from books, manuscript material. They tend not to re-issue complete books.
