In 2014 our reference publication schedule continues to flourish through a variety of publishing programmes including Routledge Major Works, Routledge Library Editions, Handbooks & Companions and our Europa series.
What can I look out for in 2014?
Well how about some Routledge Major Works 2014 Highlights!
Each Major Work requires our editorial team to locate and carefully select ‘specialist’ editors from some of the best institutions in the world to compile these sets.
These experts’ resource key articles and contributors in their specific area of study, cultivating the results into a multivolume collection known globally as a Routledge Major Work.
The Routledge Major Works editorial team has picked out the following key titles to look out for in the coming year: World Trade Organization, Language Isolates, Roman Jakobson, International Criminal Law, Sustainable Buildings and Energy, Poverty and Development.
Our Routledge Library Editions publishing programme reissues previously 'Out of Print' books, bringing past scholarship to a new generation of students and faculty offering institutions an unparalleled opportunity to build a library according to research interests or student requirements. Some 2014 highlights include collections on Homer, 20th Century Science, The First World War and Tolstoy and Dostoevsky.
We also have over 140 Handbooks & Companions in the works this year, each drawing together newly commissioned work to provide a comprehensive overview of a sub-discipline. Highlights for 2014 include: The Routledge Companion to English Studies, Routledge Handbook of Sport, Gender and Sexuality, Routledge Handbook of Islam in the West and Routledge Handbook of Family Law and Policy.
Finally, from Europa Publications, please look out for the following annual releases; International who’s who 2015, Europa World Year Book 2014 and World of Learning 2015 which no library should be without!
