Dr Anne Peacock

Human Rights and the Digital Divide, written by alumna Dr Anne Peacock, is now available to purchase. 

This book critically evaluates the goal of bridging the 'digital divide' – the gap between those who have access to the Internet and those who do not. Central to this analysis is the examination of two questions: first, is there a right to access the Internet, and if so, what does that right look like and how far does it extend? Second, if there is a right to access the Internet, is there a legal obligation on States to overcome the digital divide?

Dr Smruti Bulsari

Alumna, Dr Smruti Bulsari, has co-authored Statistical Analysis in Simple Steps Using R, a step-by-step approach to the basics of statistical tests, the prerequisites and assumptions, the procedures, and outputs and their interpretation all through the lens of R.

This is a concise guide to procuring and using R, identifying the types of tests to examine different types of research questions, and the sequential steps for undertaking statistical analysis. Intended largely for readers who are new to statistics or R or to both, this textbook addresses the problems in statistical analysis often faced by the students of social science, education, and management.

Stuart Bolus

Alumnus, Stuart Bolus, has featured in Critical Insights: Post Colonial Literature, writing the chapter Obliteration or Assimilation? Culture Clash in Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart and Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things.

This anthology explores postcolonial literature in a broad sense, guiding the reader to access the fundamental ways one should read postcolonial literature, and teaching them how to read postcolonial work. You will discover the linkage of international contributors of multiple generations, Professors and postgraduate students.

The authors hope that you will come away with a new understanding of post colonialism in a way that can be applied to future readings.
