Reviews:

Cains: The Story of Liverpool in a Pint

‘A fascinating and exhilarating story of a great Liverpool institution still brewing great beer. Beer lovers will delight in the book’.

– Roger Protz, Editor, Good Beer Guide.

Key Thinkers in Linguistics and the Philosophy of Language

I find the volume very useful, quite easy to consult and use in teaching and research, especially valuable for under and postgraduates and I really believe that it filled a gap when this was really needed.”

– Anca Gata, Linguist List 17.188

 

Mystery in Children’s Literature

“I enjoyed reading these essays … a worthwhile book to add to any well-rounded university library…”

– Jill P. May, Children’s Literature Association Quarterly.
