Mary Munro-Hill’s book Claude Duneton: Chroniqueur at Le Figaro reviewed in the Journal of French Language Studies

Mary Munro-Hill’s second book with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, entitled Claude Duneton: Chroniqueur at Le Figaro, has been reviewed in the March 2018 edition of the Journal of French Language Studies by Professor Dietmar Osthus of the University of Duisburg-Essen. The book is available to purchase for only £29.99 now directly from Cambridge Scholars.

Professor Osthus’ thoughtful and positive review is available here (subscription required), and Mary has kindly translated an excerpt below:

“Munro-Hill is a conscientious observer and analyst of Chapelan’s ideas and succeeds in determining accurately his metalinguistic position, setting his distinctive stance in the context of that of other chroniqueurs de langage […]  She shows how these chroniqueurs, despite holding mainly purist opinions, usually exhibit a degree of tolerance when faced with the internal evolution of the French language.

Her monograph constitutes an almost inexhaustible source of information concerning the metalinguistic trends prevalent in the second half of the twentieth century.”

To mark the publication of the review, we are offering a time-limited discount of 50% off Claude Duneton: Chroniqueur at Le Figaro, and it is available until the end of June for only 29.99.

New article by Dr William Mallinson on Kissinger and the Invasion of Cyprus, 1974

In 2016 Cambridge Scholars Publishing published Kissinger and the Invasion of Cyprus: Diplomacy in the Eastern Mediterranean by Dr William Mallinson, which was followed by the release of a paperback edition in 2017. Alongside co-author Vassilis Fouskas, William has just published a new article in The Cyprus Review building on the book.

The full issue, including this article, can be viewed here, and below is an excerpt:

“Our article, using recently released papers, sets out to demonstrate how Kissinger was prone to procrastination and obfuscation, almost developing them into an art, to afford the Turkish government the breathing and planning space it needed to invade Cyprus; to remain there; and then to advance further to consolidate militarily its territorial operation in order to effect partition politically. And this all happened in ‘thirty hot days’, as a prominent Turkish journalist put it.”


Kissinger and the Invasion of Cyprus: Diplomacy in the Eastern Mediterranean is available to purchase now in both hardback and paperback, please click here.

New review of The Christian Message as Vision and Mission: Philosophical Considerations of its Significance by Joel C. Sagut.

Santiago Sia’s latest book with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, The Christian Message as Vision and Mission: Philosophical Considerations of its Significancehas been reviewed by Joel C. Sagut in Philippiniana Sacra. 

Below is an excerpt from Sagut’s thoughtful and generous review:

“Prof. Sia has argued well the significance of a philosophical viewpoint that bears with it the specific end of articulating the significance of faith and faith-based institutions. He will convince the reader into seeing why we need not bracket the faith when we talk about our human concerns, including even perhaps the social and political issues that confront our human communities. Like-minded individuals and professionals, especially Catholic philosophers and educators, are invited to share the task. This book will certainly be a useful guide, and noting the author’s willingness to engage in conversations, further academic engagements and exchanges may perhaps be arranged in order to nurture the interest on this very timely concern.”


The book is available in both hardback and paperback versions from Cambridge Scholars, and can be purchased by clicking here.

Meet our Authors: Terence C. Mills – June 2018

Terence C. Mills is Emeritus Professor of Applied Statistics and Econometrics at Loughborough University, UK, having previously held professorial appointments at City University Business School and the University of Hull, also in the UK. He has previously written several books, including Time Series Techniques for Economists (1990) and The Econometric Modelling of Financial Time Series (3rd edition, 2008), and he has edited such works as Monetary and Banking History: Essays in Honour of Forrest Capie (2011) and Time Series Econometrics, 4 volumes (2015). Terence has also published over 200 articles in books and journals, including the Journal of Economic History, the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, the Journal of Climate and the International Journal of Body Composition Research, on subjects as diverse as economics, finance, meteorology, climatology and public health.

In 2017, Terence published A Statistical Biography of George Udny Yule: A Loafer of the World with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, the first major study of Yule, his work, and his influence on an extraordinarily wide range of fields.

Terence offers his reasons for choosing to publish his book with Cambridge Scholars:

“The reason I chose Cambridge Scholars was that it promoted itself as an ‘upmarket’ niche publisher. This was exactly what I was looking for given the subject material of my book, a detailed analysis of the work of George Udny Yule, one of the greatest statisticians of the first half of the 20th century. Although this is the first book-length study of Yule, it is perhaps not the type of project a mainstream publisher is necessarily interested in publishing. Cambridge Scholars, on the other hand, were extremely quick and efficient in making their decision and the production process was conducted in an efficient and pleasantly friendly manner – I would recommend them to anyone wishing to publish a book.”

As part of the Meet our Authors campaign, we are offering our readers a 50% discount on Terence’s book, A Statistical Biography of George Udny Yule: A Loafer of the World.

Meet our Authors: Heather Brunskell-Evans – June 2018

Heather Brunskell-Evans has taught and researched at numerous universities in the UK, including Goldsmiths, the London School of Economics, the University of Leicester, and latterly King’s College London. She completed her MA at Goldsmiths where she specialised in the work of Luce Irigaray and the philosophy of language and the body. She also completed a doctoral thesis at Goldsmiths where she analysed the philosophy and ethics of childhood, gender and sexuality in the work of Foucault, queer theory and radical feminism. Her focus was on the power relationships between adults and children and young people, and how to conceptualise the latter’s relationship to their bodies. She went on to teach the philosophy and sociology of education, and the relationship between medicine and the law in the construction of modern sexed and gendered subjectivities.

Heather has published internationally on a range of topics, including on higher education in the UK, and with Michele Moore on the politics of higher education in Iraq. Her first book with Cambridge Scholars Publishing was published in 2016, entitled The Sexualized Body and the Medical Authority of Pornography: Performing Sexual Liberation. Most recently, she has collaborated again with Michele Moore on the 2018 book Transgender Children and Young People: Born in Your Own Body, which has just been published by Cambridge Scholars in a paperback edition, and which will be followed by a second just-contracted book focusing on the transgender child. Heather recently appeared on the BBC’s The Big Questions on the 3rd of June to discuss her work and its continuing importance.

Heather explains her and Michele’s rationale for publishing with Cambridge Scholars:

“Cambridge Scholars contacted me in 2014 and invited me to write about my research on the relationship between medicine, sexology and pornography in the construction of the ‘sexually liberated subject’. Cambridge Scholars’ request has turned into the most fruitful of collaborations. My first book was an edited collection, and from inception to completion I was given expert, professional advice always delivered with a warm, friendly approach.

Cambridge Scholars therefore became the obvious choice when my colleague Michele Moore and I became interested in the fast-growing, new cultural phenomenon of ‘the transgender child and young person’. Michele is a professor of inclusive education and editor in chief of the journal Disability and Society. Our focus was the role of political activism and pressure groups in knowledge-making about children’s and young people’s sexed bodies and gender identities, and thus the role of political activism in the construction of the medico-legal figure of ‘the transgender child and young person’. We decided to invite the perspectives of a number of stakeholders for this edited collection including parents, academics, educationalists, psychotherapists, and those who had decided to de-transition.

Our mutual experience of working with Cambridge Scholars mirrored my original experience. The editorial guidance given to us has always combined with support and encouragement to pursue and to retain the integrity of our topic and mode of analysis. Michele and I very much hope to further our collaboration with Cambridge Scholars in the future.”

As part of our Meet our Authors campaign, we are offering readers a 50% discount on both the hardback and paperback editions of Transgender Children and Young People: Born in Your Own Body.
