Ordering information:

There are three ways of getting the book, depending on where you are. Methods (1)-(2) will yield a hardcover book at Rs. 795, while method (3) will yield a softcover book at $35-$50, depending on where you shop.

(1) In North East India, check with a major bookstore such as Modern Book Depot in Guwahati/Shillong, or contact Mr. Nayan Kakoty (North-East Regional Area Manager, Cambridge University Press India) directly on +91-361-265-7708 or +91-361-273-5336 to arrange payment and local delivery.

(2) Elsewhere in India, you may order directly from the website of Cambridge University Press India ( or from major Indian book distributors such as DK or Manoharlal. This method may also work for overseas customers, although there are sometimes difficulties with using international credit cards in India, so there is no guarantee of success.

(3) Internationally, you may order from any major book distributor, such as Amazon ( or The Book Depository, Abebooks, etc. It may also be possible to order from your regional CUP office directly, but the abovementioned methods seem likely to yield a book more quickly.

Review copies may be requested from Dr. Annie Hazarika, Publishing Manager at CUP India in Delhi, at ahazarika at

As with other volumes in the NEIL series, royalties from sales of NEIL3 will help to fund NEILS’ yearly conferences, as well as other NEILS projects (such as the recently-announced NILDA awards), so please be a good neighbour and request that your local university library purchase a copy.

With all our best,

Mark Post
