recent books by CASID members powerpoint slides



Dear colleagues,


Attached is a powerpoint slide presentation of the recent publications by CASID members.


The request sent out was for books that have been published in the last year or so, or books that are about to be released. Some people have sent in other publications they wish to feature.


Please have a look at the powerpoint slide. If you would like me to add your publication, let me know by Friday afternoon – May 26th – tomorrow (I`m running out of time
before the book launch). I know there are more recent books published by our CASID members so be in touch.


Please send me the title, an image (or a link to the image), the publisher and the date of publication.
