Our books are reviewed in a variety of places – from specialised journals to blogs, online newsletters and websites.

Please find below a selection of some of our recent reviews.


Book cover“Dunleavy and Carrera have performed a difficult, burdensome, original, practical and innovative service to the public sector practitioners and academic observers of public administration and public sector management. This is a book that simply had to be written, but it took a colossal amount of time, effort and experience to do so, and to do it so well.”

Book cover“As noted by the Editors in their Introduction, this book does not seek to ‘provide the final answer’ to the question of how best to promote legal linkages between biodiversity and climate change regulation at the international, national and local levels. It rather constitutes a ‘contribution to the debate’, illustrating that the ‘law adapts slowly to change’ and that ‘innovative approaches need to be adopted … to ensure that biodiversity is not depleted, that climate change is not expedited and that the less fortunate do not suffer’. In this vein the book provides a valuable contribution to the emerging discourse”.

A Paterson; review of Biodiversity And Climate Change, in Potchefstroom Electronic Law Journal 16(4): 473-477

Book cover“Perhaps what this collection offers more than anything is the opportunity to adopt Mills’ thought as a spur to action – as a way of being a sociologist, which is arguably rather romanticised but nevertheless provides a fecund space in which to operate, particularly in environments where sociology is increasingly under threat.”

Sarah Burton, University of Glasgow; review of C. Wright Mills And The Sociological ImaginationLSE Review of Books.
