Verso Books letter

29 April 2010

Dear Michael Driscoll, Waqar Ahmad, Margaret House and Ed Esche,

As both a friend and publisher of a number of writers who have either studied or taught philosophy at Middlesex, I was horrified to learn today that the department is under threat. I very much hope that the decision will be reversed: it would be disastrous and short-sighted for Middlesex University, damaging to higher education in the UK, and a terrible precedent for other universities and humanities departments. Verso Books will be supporting Middlesex faculty, staff and students as they fight this decision …
