JKP marks 30 years with essay collection

Jessica Kingsley Publishers is releasing 30 Years of Social Change, a collection of original essays exploring the past, present and future of many of the helping or altruistic professions, to mark 30 years of publishing books on social justice and difference.

The contributors are JKP authors who are leading thinkers from a range of fields including autism, education, social work, gender diversity, Chinese medicine, and complementary therapy. Each essay offers insights into the author’s area of expertise, offering "thoughtful" accounts of the positive social change achieved over the past 30 years, and what the future may hold.

Managing director Jessica Kingsley founded JKP in 1987, and the company has grown since then to now publish over 250 books a year. Kinglsey said: "What could be more interesting or exciting than working with so many creative, dynamic people whose values we share – it is immensely rewarding."

30 Years of Social Change will publish on 19th October. JKP owns world rights to this book.
