Conan Doyle: Writing, Profession, and Practice approaches Conan Doyle's writing in terms of themes such as sport, science, crime, and empire, finding within it a complex and surprising interpretation of a late-Victorian and early twentieth-century world, emerging into a troubling modernity.

Incense Tree by Douglas Kerr Incense Tree, Paperback (March 2009)

A collection of poetry that reflects the fortunes of Hong Kong and its people, their hopes and anxieties, their achievements, crises, dispersals and renewals.

Critical Zone 3 by Douglas Kerr Critical Zone 3, Paperback (February 2009)

Contains essays of cultural and historical studies of Hong Kong, and on America as an 'empire of immigrants'. This volume also contains English translations of work by Chinese scholars on Chinese nationalism, history writing, China's naval capabilities and foreign policy strategy.

Eastern Figures by Douglas Kerr Eastern Figures, Paperback (June 2008)

Examines British writing about the East - centred on India but radiating as far as Egypt and the Pacific - in the colonial and postcolonial period. This book takes as its subject 'the East' that was real to the British imagination, largely the creation of writers who described and told stories about it.
