If you are interested in reviewing any of these, please contact me at l.oakes at 
, indicating the title and your postal address. Reviews should be no  
longer than 1,000 words in length and are generally due three months  
after receipt of the book. Editorial guidelines and more details about  
the journal are available at: 

I would be grateful if you could forward this list to any interested  
and qualified colleagues or students. Please also note our policy of  
only one review per person per year. If you have written a review for  
us recently, I would therefore appreciate it if you held off this time.

With thanks and best wishes,

Leigh Oakes
