Publications are grouped as follows:

Below we give details of the suppliers:

Upcoming or New Titles

Nothing of note at present.


Our links to books which can be bought via are generally restricted to titles which are a) relevant and b) shouldn't take for ever to be delivered. However, we have added some which take longer to come into stock (shoudl carry the symbol ~~ to indicate this). These may attract the £1-99 plus VAT 'sourcing fee' charge, especially DSC titles, but on the other hand you could incur higher p&p charges if ordering direct from the publisher.

Standard categories at Amazon:

Directory of Social Change

Directory of Social Change publishes a wide range of titles specifically for the voluntary sector, and stocks relevant books from other publishers to make the selection even more comprehensive.

Note that cover prices were increased across the board in January 2006 - we may not have updated all titles.
