Brill Research Perspectives in International Banking and Securities Law addresses legal and regulatory developments in the area of banking and securities law from both international and interdisciplinary perspectives. It reviews and advances scholarship in this complex area of law and is of interest to academics, practitioners, and policy makers.
Each issue in the journal comprises a single article. The articles published may focus not only on regional developments relating to banking and finance but also on multilateral and international arrangements. Recurrent themes include (but are not limited to) studies and analysis of the international financial architecture as well as aspects of market infrastructure, the protection of consumers in the financial sector, and specifics of banking, securities markets, and mutual fund regulation.
Brill Research Perspectives in Comparative Discrimination Law addresses discrimination issues both horizontally (discrimination law as an overarching framework) as well as vertically (specific topics within discrimination law – for example, age, sex, race, and disability – at national, regional, and international levels). Theoretical approaches as well as more pragmatic approaches, such as active measures, are also examined. Each quarterly issue comprises a single short monograph of 50-100 pages presenting state-of-the-art research and analysis of a selected subject.
Brill Research Perspectives in Comparative Discrimination Law’s primary readership includes scholars, educators, students, policy decision makers, practitioners, and non-governmental organizations active in the field of discrimination law. The objective of the journal is to create a global approach to these issues, with the endeavor of publishing contributions by authors from around the world.
Historical Materialism Book Series is a major publishing initiative of the radical left. The capitalist crisis of the twenty-first century has been met by a resurgence of interest in critical Marxist theory. At the same time, the publishing institutions committed to Marxism have contracted markedly since the high point of the 1970s. The
Historical Materialism Book Series is dedicated to addressing this situation by making available important works of Marxist theory. The aim of the series is to publish important theoretical contributions as the basis for vigorous intellectual debate and exchange on the left. We are convinced that a project of this kind can make an important contribution to the revitalisation of critical politics and intellectual culture.
The peer-reviewed series publishes original monographs, translated texts and reprints of ‘classics’ across the bounds of academic disciplinary agendas, and across the divisions of the left. The series is particularly concerned to encourage the internationalisation of Marxist debate, and aims to translate significant studies from beyond the English speaking world. We have previously published important studies of Marxist thinkers, key collections of sources from the socialist movement, works of philosophy, history and literary criticism, as well as political and economic studies. Future publication plans include texts in the fields of cultural and aesthetic theory, sociology and geography.
Historical Materialism Book Series will expand significantly over the coming years with substantial and important books in all areas of Marxist theory. We are undertaking a project of publishing previously untranslated texts by Marx, long unavailable debates from the 2nd and 3rd Internationals, and English editions of important studies from the post war period. Equally significantly, we also aim to publish the work of the emerging generation of Marxist scholars and theorists. The
Historical Materialism Book Series intends to be at the forefront of radical publishing for the coming period with a commitment to rigorous intellectual work produced within the many Marxist traditions.
The 21st century has been haunted by increasing inequality, both within countries and between countries, across multiple dimensions. There is an increasing need for serious scholarship that questions mainstream perspectives and points towards a more equitable world. The
New Scholarship in Political Economy series is designed to showcase the research of recent scholars working in any field of the social sciences whose research is informed by the work of Karl Marx. We seek interesting proposals for monographs, edited volumes, or recent PhDs that could be transformed into a monograph for publication. Authors should be in the early stages of their careers, with the expectation that a publication in this series will help promote their work while bringing attention to the latest scholarship within a critical political economy perspective.
NOTE TO CONTRIBUTORS New Scholarship in Political Economy seeks contributions from early career scholars whose research is broadly located in the Marxist traditions in the social sciences. This includes heterodox economic analysis, critical social science research, and an array of inquiries ranging across cultural studies, gender, race and ethnicity research, and more. By early career, we mean scholars in the beginning of their academic or intellectual trajectory who can benefit from having their work appear in print. More established scholars should submit their proposals to the main series:
Studies in Critical Social Sciences
For consideration in
New Scholarship in Political Economy, authors should send the following: a) working title, b) a precise outline of the scope and focus of their work, and c) a tentative table of contents with a brief annotation describing each chapter. Please do not send full manuscripts until asked to do so. Once a contract has been issued, contributors will receive guidelines and specific instructions on submitting their work.
We are interested in publishing books based on newly minted or imminent PhDs, though we recognize that the process of turning one’s work into a publishable monograph will require a careful recasting and rewriting. A PhD is written to address the requirements of an institution and one’s committee, while a publishable monograph must appeal to a wider audience and does not require the kind of broad justification (literature, methods, etc. demonstrating professional competence) that must be included in a thesis: please bear this in mind when submitting your proposal. New PhDs should include a letter of introduction from an academic familiar with their work addressing the merits of the proposed project.
