Dinosaurs of the Upper Jurassic
Praise for 'Dinosaurs on My Street' by David West: 'The illustrations are center stage ...plenty of strong appeal for dinosaur buffs' School Library Journal. A series about the prehistoric giants. This series of six books is for dinosaur enthusiasts and novices alike. It covers dinosaurs living in the six periods that make up the Mesozoic Age, which spanned prehistoric time from 250 million years ago to 65 million years ago. Each book is an illustrated guide to 25 of the best-known dinosaurs of that period. Up-to-date information accompanies the highly detailed computer-generated artworks - big, colourful, lifelike, fill-the-page dinosaurs. The books open with an illustrated introductory spread that provides background information on the time period in which the 25 dinosaurs lived. The dinosaur spreads bear a brief introduction, information on when and where it lived, its size, and where fossil remains have been found. They also have a shadow icon of an adult human or child or animal (e.g. domestic cat), which indicates the size of the dinosaur. All dinosaur-loving readers will thrill at the giant and engaging dino artworks. These books are sure to be enjoyed over and over again.

I. A. Richards and the Rise of Cognitive Stylistics
I. A. Richards is an influential figure in literary criticism but has rarely been thought of as someone who laid the foundations for cognitive stylistics. This book proposes that Richards was a protocognitivist . West argues that Richards anticipated many of the discipline's core aims, methods and assumptions. The book argues that the roots of cognitive psychology lie in early 20th-century psychology, when there was a focus on cognitive processes such as memory and learning, attention, categorisation, perception and consciousness. It was this cognitive psychology that Richards drew upon to build a theory of literature and interpretation - which in itself prefigured cognitive stylistics. West also suggests that Richards is one of the more influential British intellectuals of the 20th century, and that his work is still relevant today. West argues that cognitive stylistics is not, as Peter Stockwell has written, a new science of literature and reading , but rather a discipline with a history that it continues to deny itself. This book will appeal to researchers and advanced students in stylistics and literary studies.

Continental Philosophy: An Introduction
This book is a fully updated and expanded new edition of An Introduction to Continental Philosophy, first published in 1996. It provides a clear, concise and readable introduction to philosophy in the continental tradition. It is a wide-ranging and reliable guide to the work of such major figures as Nietzsche, Habermas, Heidegger, Arendt, Sartre, Foucault, Derrida and i ek. At the same time, it situates their thought within a coherent overall account of the development of continental philosophy since the Enlightenment. Individual chapters consider the character of modernity, the Enlightenment and its continental critics; the ideas of Marxism, the Frankfurt School and Habermas; hermeneutics and phenomenology; existentialism; structuralism, post-structuralism and postmodernism. In addition to the thinkers already mentioned, there is extended discussion of the ideas of Kant, Hegel, Dilthey, Husserl, Gadamer, Kierkegaard, de Beauvoir and Lyotard. The new edition includes an additional, full-length chapter on continental philosophy in the twenty-first century focusing on Giorgio Agamben, Alain Badiou and Slavoj i ek. Continental Philosophy: An Introduction is an invaluable introductory text for courses on continental philosophy as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences dealing with major figures or influential approaches within that tradition.

Quality and Pleasure in Latin Poetry
Originally published in 1974, these studies of Latin poetry were commissioned with two main purposes in mind: to encourage a fresh reading of several Latin poets from the time of Catullus to Horace, and to illustrate various, critical approaches to literature. As the literary study of Latin developed in schools and universities there was a proliferation of critical techniques, which were greeted with bewilderment by some, with hostility by others. This book does not attempt to adjudicate finally between them. There can be no one 'prescription' for interpreting poetry; but this does not mean that there are no valid standards of judgement. Criticism must be flexible, imaginative and sympathetic, but it must also be rigourous. To counteract feelings of disorientation the editors tried to provide samples of the best critical work in progress at the time of publication.
