Thanks to recommendations from members of staff and requests via RAB from students the Library is continually adding new books to its collections both online and in print. Here are just a small number of the books that have been added to the Library’s collections in May and June 2015 for Social and Political Science and these demonstrate the wide range of subjects being studied and researched within School.
George Padmore and decolonization from below: pan-Africanism, the Cold War, and the end of empire by Leslie James (shelfmark: DT30 Jam. Also available as e-book.)
Land and Desire in Early Zionism by Boaz Neumann (shelfmark: DS149 Neu. Also available as e-book.)

Check DiscoverEd for full details of the books including number of copies, location and availability. Access to e-books is only available to students and staff of University of Edinburgh.
You may find some of these books in the New Books display on the 1st floor of the Main Library, where a selection of new books from all subjects across the University are held. Books on these display shelves can be borrowed as normal.
