Elvis in Memphis

14 Apr 2017

 Our amazing author, Zoey Goto has been to Memphis Tennessee promoting her definitive Elvis Style. The Lansky Bros shop was where Elvis honed his style and Zoey visited there for a signing, pictured with Hal Lansky, who wrote the Preface to Elvis Style. Incredibly, it will soon be the 40th anniversary of Elvis' death - but his style definitely lives on!

Forthcoming Titles

16 Mar 2017

Please look out for our recently published and forthcoming titles.

The Learning in Higher Education series goes from strength to strength with two new titles recently added. 'Innovative Teaching and Learning in Higher Education' is now available. This latest volume brings together examples of teaching and learning innovations, within the domain of higher education. The anthology is diverse in nature and showcases concrete examples of innovative teaching and learning practices in higher education from around the world. The contributions come from all scientific disciplines and in all teaching and learning contexts. 

Also in the series and publishing in April is 'Globalisation of Higher Education'. The editors explore the fact that globalisation is both an opportunity and a challenge to higher education. Universities open up branches in foreign countries. New educational partnerships are being established across borders. We see globalisation of higher education on the rise everywhere. Is there a perfect model of globalisation of higher education? Probably not! Nevertheless, they believe that we can learn a lot from studying excellent contextual globalisation practices taking place at universities around the world. This book presents interesting and varied cases of globalisation of higher education. 

Graham Cairns, editor of the 'Housing the Future' series, has a new book due out in May. 'Housing Solutions through Design'. This new work explores housing design with a special focus on affordability. It gives the perspectives of academics who research and teaching on housing; professionals who design and build, and students who are learning. The book foregrounds innovative approaches of the designers of today and tomorrow. This book is the second in the Housing the Future Series, one of the aims of which is to collate a broad sample of the work being done from a design perspective in universities across the world on the issue of affordable housing. This very ‘real’ engagement with the issues of housing affordability is a key component of this series and is why the series invites practitioners to discuss their work. 'Housing Solutions through Design' will be available from May.

Chris Edger, highly regarded author of 'Effective Brand Leadership' and 'Retail Area Management' has written an exciting new book, 'Inspirational Leadership'. In a crowded market this book provides a distinctive take on leadership. Inspirational Leadership outlines how the best industry leaders (at any level) practise the concept of eMOTION - moving, shifting, mobilising and reframing feelings, mindsets and behaviours to produce super-performance. It is accompanied by real life, contemporary case studies from Inspirational Leaders who bring its underlying arguments and concepts alive.  Inspirational Leadership will be available in June.
