Books and journals available: Mission Studies, Africa and more

Collections of books on anthropology, new religious movements, the history of Christian mission, various regions in Africa and Asia, and related subjects are being offered free of charge (other than any dispersal costs) to interested libraries, institutions or individuals. Historic copies of several missions and African studies journals are also available.

The material is part of the remaining academic archive of a late friend. Much, though by no means all, dates from her time as a graduate student in the 1970s. It is generally in good condition. The categories of books, and specific journal issues, are listed below.

The volumes are housed at present in north London — and are available upon collection, or payment for packing and delivery. There is no other charge, but those who wished could make a donation to the London Mennonite Centre or another charity.

Please note that the material is being offered in lots — that is, you will need to take all of a particular book category or journal title, rather than selected volumes only. However, I would be happy to provide a list of specific titles within a category on request.

I need to confirm plans for disposal of the remainder of this collection by 31 July 2011, so please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested. The deadline for collecting material will be 19 August 2011.

The email address to write to is: simonDOTbarrowATekklesiaDOTcoDOTuk.
