In August and September the Routledge Library Editions programme sees the publication of 3 multi-volume collections: RLE: Women's History, RLE: Plato, and RLE: Retailing and Distribution - of interest to those with research interests in women's history, philosophy and business.
What are Routledge Library Editions (RLEs)?
RLEs are collections of books from the Routledge past: facsimile copies of books published by all of the imprints Routledge (and Taylor & Francis) have been associated with.
Which subject areas do the RLEs cover?
Humanities and Social Sciences. Our collections reflect the breadth of our publishing, in areas which we now take for granted. Our Asian Studies collections were published at a time long before Asian Studies was regarded as an accepted academic discipline.
How big are the RLEs?
RLE collections vary from 6-300 volumes. Each ‘library’ is made up of a diverse range of titles by various authors. Readers can purchase titles individually, as thematically structured mini-sets, or as a complete set.
