In conjunction with Routledge, the Centre for Critical Realism (CCR) produces a book series on realist social theory, philosophy, and related topics. Previously, we had a number of series, which we have now consolidated into one active book series.

We welcome proposals for new titles in the series. For further details on how to prepare a proposal please consult our page on Writing a Proposal for the series. For any questions, and to submit a proposal, please contact Gareth Wiltshire, our Managing Editor.
