    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 19.95

    This book explores previously unexamined links between the arbitrary as articulated in linguistic theories on the one hand, and in political discourse about power on the other.

  • Spanish Literatureby Jo Labanyi

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 9.99

    Spanish literature has given the world the figures of Don Quixote and Don Juan, and is responsible for the 'invention' of the novel in the 16th century.

  • The Brother-Sister Culture in Nineteenth-Century Literatureby Valerie Sanders

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 175.00

  • The Pen and the Swordby Michael Foot

    Faber & Faber 2012; US$ 23.32

    Disappointment can be salutary. In the 1955 election Michael Foot surprisingly lost his seat. Until then he had been a journalist, albeit a prolific and influential one.
