thanks for this trial.
London Review of Books is a fabulous publication. as an academic i derive much intellectual enrichment from reading it and if we could please subscribe i would be able to refer my students to it on a regular basis, both for specific content and for examples of persuasive writing.
In this era of increased specialisation it is so important to have generalist publications directed to the intelligent lay reader
this is an invaluable resource providing students intelligent and comprehensive analysis of works by experts – a much needed antidote to the general paucity of good quality commentary
