Books to change the way we think

Our ‘Big Ideas’ titles are intelligent, interdisciplinary books that present critical thought and evidence in a succinct and readable way to help to untangle contemporary social issues.

Published by both Bristol University Press and Policy Press imprints, these books aim to surprise, disrupt and change the way we think, addressing cross-cutting issues such as class, race, gender, politics and social inequality.

Aimed at thoughtful and engaged readers who want to challenge received opinion, these titles will help us to work towards a common cause of social justice.
