Very Short Introductions series

Very Short Introductions RSS

Oxford's Very Short Introductions series offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects -- from Islam to Sociology, Politics to Classics, and Literary Theory to History. Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume provides trenchant and provocative - yet always balanced - discussions of the central issues in a given topic. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make often challenging topics highly readable. Whatever the area of study, whatever the topic that fascinates the reader, the series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable.

"The Very Short Introductions range from worth reading to wonderfully appealingâ Much of the pleasure to be found in them is the bedrock one of good nonfiction: facts." - The New Yorker Magazine
