Routledge Revivals

What is a Revival?

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.

Which subject areas do the Revivals cover?

All subjects which fall within the spectrum of the Humanities and Social Sciences, 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 360 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.

We regularly update our Revivals web page please visit this for the latest news, features and offers.
