As you may already know, Ashgate has decided to bring to a close
its philosophy books programme, and sadly our commissioning editor
Paul Coulam is no longer with us. We have reluctantly arrived at
this difficult decision following a review of our wider publishing
strategy and the current market environment and competition level
for this list.
We are honouring all contracts with authors so all titles under
contract in the philosophy list will proceed through to publication
and receive the same promotion as the other books we publish. We
have, however, ceased to issue new contracts in Philosophy.
I will be overseeing the progress of contracted books through to
their production. If you have a book under contract with us and
would like to discuss its preparation please feel free to contact
me at any time.
