                          Welcome to our Autumn/Winter 2020 seasonal catalogue. We find ourselves in strange and difficult
                          times, and recognise that many – if not all – of our colleagues across the academic world now find
                          themselves dealing with new ways of working. Our vision seems all the more important at present: to
                          publish the best academic books and journals that seek to promote understanding, stimulate debate
                          and communicate scholarly ideas to the world.
                          The new books and series you will find across these pages do just that, and I hope there is much
                          here to inform, and in some cases entertain you (see the exploration of Monty Python in And Now
                          for Something Completely Different and a cultural history of the werewolf film, Phases of the Moon p.4).
                          You might also want to lose yourself in some beautiful books of Islamic art (see p.10–11). Meanwhile
                          lecturers in linguistics will be delighted to see a new edition of Lyle Campbell’s Historical Linguistics
                          (p.24) alongside a range of other textbooks. And anyone with an interest in thinking critically about the
                          world and how we live in it will want to read Tristan Garcia’s We Ourselves as well as Etienne Balibar’s
                          Spinoza, the Transindividual (p.28). In the world of politics, new books in the Intelligence, Surveillance
                          and Secret Warfare series give much food for thought.

                                                                                                                   Nicola Ramsey, Head of Editorial
