Books authored or co-authored by group members

All Outputs, 2010-Present

Since 2010, members of the Lee-Campbell Group have produced 80 academic publications, including 7 single and co-authored books and 1 edited volume. Many of these are based on our various ongoing group research projects and make use of the associated datasets. Others are from other projects not associated with the Lee-Campbell group in which group members are involved and include co-authors who are not group members. Please see the curriculum vitae for James Lee and Cameron Campbell for publications beyond the last thirteen years. Please also see the four decade retrospective by Campbell and Lee published in 2020 which summarizes all their projects as well as many of their publications going back to the 1980s.
