First impressions of Philosophy?
I’m delighted to introduce myself as the new Assistant Editor for Philosophy at Rowman & Littlefield International. Having reached the end of my first month here, I thought it would be a good point to reflect upon what I have learnt so far and write about my first impressions of publishing in a subject area which I’m really looking forward to working and publishing in.

RLI Shortlisted for The British Book Industry Awards
And ‘All Must Have Prizes’ or apparently not… as our outside chance of an ‘early-career’ victory at the British Book Industry Awards in the Independent Academic, Educational & Professional category came to nothing. We were scuppered by the victory of Jessica Kingsley which, on a moments reflection, all seemed rather just. A 30 year publishing history which has shed light to an extraordinary degree on autism and Asperger syndrome was fittingly recognised and rewarded.

London Book Fair 2016

Arriving at the second day of the fair, I was pleasantly surprised by the politeness and availability of the staff who were at hand at the entrance as well as spread sporadically within the fair grounds. Equipped with a map of the fair’s colossal space and a guideline of events, I set off, absorbing the buzz of like-minded book-lovers.

Ecotones: A New Series
An ecotone is the term for that space where two biomes meet, combine, and transition one to the other. Ecotones exist at various scales, for example, local transition zones between a prairie and a forest or large transition zones between grasslands and wetlands. The Ecotones series is guided by the conviction that serious work in the environmental humanities must inhabit such theoretical ecotones between the various regions in the humanities and social sciences (philosophy, religious studies, sociology, as well as relatively new discursive traditions like area studie...
