Increased Holdings in Philosophy and Social and Cultural Theory

We're just purchased a considerable number of new titles on philosophy, cultural theory, sociology, psychology and anthropology. This is in response to feedback from our students and researchers, and has enabled us to plug gaps in our collection in these areas.
