Where applicable, we will always supply titles in the paperback edition. We reserve the right to supply an inspection copy in electronic format. All inspection copies are supplied at our discretion, and we reserve the right to refuse a request for an inspection copy.


Inspection copies are available on a 30-day inspection basis for adoption on courses of 12 or more students. After 30 days the book should be either:
