Latest Edition of the Bristish Academy Review Released
The Government Spending Review, the psychology of Climate Change, chronic disease in Africa, and Islam and Muslims in the UK are just a few of the hot topics explored in the latest edition of the British Academy Review.
Does the Government need to cut public spending to 25% of GDP to help Britain survive the financial crisis? How does volcanic ash affect a politician’s decision making? Why do Londoners not class themselves as ‘English’? What is Star Carr and why was it so special? With contributions from renowned experts such as Andrew Gamble, Sir Adam Roberts and David Uzzell, the Review showcases exclusive articles and research from the humanities and social sciences.
The issue also features British Academy President Sir Adam Roberts’ blog from his recent epic journey from Lands End to John O’Groats by bicycle. From encountering prehistoric reptile demolition machines to ‘merging showers’, and persevering with a very ‘tyring’ chronic puncture, the International Relations Specialist completed the 1000 mile journey with his daughter Hannah on his 70th birthday. The account is well worth a read and there is still time to sponsor.
