Major Works

Routledge Major Works are multi-volume collections ranging from 4-6 volume sets, with a focus on a particular concept, theme, or individual. Essentially 'mini-libraries', these collections gather material from various sources allowing users to gain access to pre published material that is inaccessible, not widely available or is scattered throughout a variety of specialist books and journals.
