We send a large number of review copies to academic journals and are by most standards, fairly generous with the number of such copies we send out per title. Review copies are sent to three sets of interested parties:
1. A group of general journals and magazines, such as non-specialised book reviews, library journals or similar publications spanning a broad readership;
2. A selection of journals that we have compiled for each subject. Below is a sample of such publications:
American Historical Association (history)
The Historian (history)
Art History (art)
Bryn Mawr (classics)
French Studies (French studies)
Journal of the American Musicological Society (music)
Mind Journal (philosophy)
MLA International Bibliography (literature)
3. Author recommended specialised journals that may have an interest in reviewing the book.
We also send out review copies for all sorts of other reasons, from bookstores who may wish to stock a title to examination copies for lecturers.
From Border States in the Work of Tom Mac Intyre: A Paleo-Postmodern Perspective
''Catriona Ryan has more than achieved what she set out to do.She has emphatically presented Tom Mac Intyre as a writer with a distinctive voice who not only provides a crucial link in the chain that goes back through Kavanagh to Yeats, but as a bridging figure, a transgressive author whose reflections on the Irish literary scene, and on writing more generally, have much to tell us about the ways in which constrictive critical currents can cut off living literary streams. It is clear from Catriona Ryan's painstaking excavation that Mac Intyre has been wrongly neglected. Her thoughtful and perceptive critical intervention will remedy that wrong.''
- Willy Maley, Litteraria Pragensia, 22:44 (2013), 131-134, p. 134.
“This is a critically independent piece of work that very much constructs and defines its own project, and maps an intellectual terrain of its own. It is an impressively original and also critically self-assured piece. It is marked by a sense of intellectual brio and also by the excitement of discovery.”
– Dr Steven Vine, Swansea University
“Since Tom Mac Intyre is a writer and dramatist who has received very little critical attention, this work intervenes in an under-researched area and offers an innovative and valuable extension of the frontier of knowledge in the field of Irish literary and dramatic studies.”
– Dr Aidan Arrowsmith, Manchester Metropolitan University
