Notes on editors and contributors.

References

"We think in words. A careful discussion of the words we use helps us to think more clearly about modern western society. All academic libraries catering for the humanities or social sciences should consider requiring a reference copy, as should those public libraries which still feel their mission is to assist their readers in thinking clearly, rather than just to provide them with entertainment." Martin Guha, King's College London
