Books of the Week

This new book list is a tribute to Ashgate Publishing which was acquired by Informa (Taylor & Francis Publishing) last summer. Ashgate’s U.S. office has since been dissolved. Ashgate had built a reputation for publishing new titles reflecting cutting edge research in the arts and humanities, often written by new scholars. You will see some of those titles reflected here.
