The Edinburgh Introduction to Studying English
Extensively tested at the University of Edinburgh, this introduction to the tools required for literary study provides all the skills, background and critical knowledge which students require to approach their study of literature with confidence. This second edition includes 3 new chapters on Reading, Writing an Essay, and Reflecting. Each focuses on the ‘how to’ element when studying literature, and covers issues such as how to avoid plagiarism, and how to prepare a bibliography.
The original emphasis on clear explanation of critical practices, and of literary forms, styles and techniques remains. These explanations are carefully illustrated through examples taken from readily-available works, especially those included in the Norton Anthology of English Literature. The result is a well-stocked toolbox providing introductions to the ways in which literary texts can be approached as well as to the critical, formal and historical understanding this requires.

Four Horsemen, Ross Ashcroft, 2012
Twenty-three leading thinkers explain how the world really works and the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster. The film pulls no punches in describing the consequences of continued inaction – but its message is one of hope. If more people can equip themselves with a better understanding of how the world really works, then the systems and structures that condemn billions to poverty or chronic insecurity can at last be overturned.
