    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Through its many and varied manifestations, authority has frequently played a role in the communication process in both manuscript and print.

  • Writing What You Knowby Meg Files

    Allworth Press 2016; US$ 16.99

  • Fatherhood, Authority, and British Reading Culture, 1831-1907by Melissa Shields Jenkins

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    During a period when the idea of fatherhood was in flux and individual fathers sought to regain a cohesive collective identity, debates related to a father?s authority were negotiated and resolved through competing documents.

  • James Joyce's 'Work in Progress'by Dirk Van Hulle

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The text of Finnegans Wake is not as monolithic as it might seem. It grew out of a set of short vignettes, sections and fragments.

And while they are undeniably integrated very skillfully, they also function... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

Suggesting that the characteristic... more...

  • Consuming Booksby Stephen Brown

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 54.95

    The buying, selling, and writing of books is a colossal industry in which marketing looms large, yet there are very few books which deal with book marketing (how-to texts excepted) and fewer still on book consumption. This innovative text not only rectifies this, but also argues that far from being detached, the book business in fact epitomises today?s... more...
