Our paperbacks retail at around £20, our hardbacks at around £30, and our e-books at under £6, which is significantly less than most academic monographs. All of the books we publish are listed in our All Books tab and in our Catalogue available in PDF format. New publications are listed in Forthcoming Titles.
