This month I have selected some of the books published by one company – Jessica Kingsley Publishers. I have reviewed their books from time to time and have been pleased with their presentation and the authors they have commissioned. Each book provides a good biography of the author including their number of years in practice. The books are current and identify aspects of life especially for children and young people that we as adults may be required to support and coach them through.I hope the reviews encourage you to explore further.
Here is what they say about themselves:
Jessica Kingsley Publishers is a wholly independent company, committed to publishing books that make a difference. The company was founded in 1987 by Jessica Kingsley and has grown since then to the point where we now publish around 150 books a year, which are available throughout the world. In 2004 we opened our US office, in Philadelphia. We publish books for professional and general readers in a range of subjects. We are well known for our long established lists on the autism spectrum, on social work, and on the arts therapies. More recently we have published extensively in the fields of mental health, counselling, palliative care, and practical theology.
We are independent publishers of accessible books that make a difference. Recognised as the leading publisher on autism and Asperger syndrome, we publish in a range of areas including social work, education and arts therapies. Our books are for parents, professionals, academics and the general reader.
